Jamaican Magnum Tonic Wine:

Let’s move beyond the brand, and project Magnum to be a brand new product you’re trying for the first time.

Experience Magnum Tonic Wine

From notes of Grass to Apple Juice, bear with me as I take you on this journey.

Color:

Deep Amber

Aroma:

A small and pinched nose that is licorice, in your face anise aromas, and a floral floral note. I’m not tiptoeing around the base of this wine, as I want you to get an unfiltered sense of what we are working with here.

Taste:

The mouthfeel is very dry.

The first sip reveals a wine that is oaky, with an initial tinge of sweetness, and a peppery bite. Slightly sweet, with a mid-palate tinge of spice. The aftertaste lingers on the tongue with the taste of licorice.

Verdict:

This is a good alternative to Green Label or dark rum in an everyday cocktail such as a Rum Manhattan, or a Rum tonic if you prefer.
Magnum Tonic Wine is good for shoot outs and guest drinks. Don’t drink too much of it on it’s own however, because you may develop a tough love for it, and it may be hard to untap at the next session or party.

What I like about Magnum Tonic Wine:

What I didn’t like about Magnum Tonic Wine:

The roughness of this wine is its downfall. I would have ideally wanted a smoother finish from the first taste to the last. Despite this minor bump in the road, this wine makes me want to go out and do a Rum Manhattan.

Magnum lovers, if you can get past the roughness and rough edges, you’ll be glad to know there is more enjoyment to be had from this western import.

Like I said earlier, this is something you must try. Not just because this is a Jamaican product, but because it is genuinely good, and gives you the opportunity to experience something new in your everyday rum routine.

Jamaican Magnum Tonic Wine Review 1:

In the olden days, I would complain if I was drinking a bad brand of rum. Today, I walk into a store, pass by the Light and overpriced rums, and search for a good product like Jamaican Magnum Tonic Wine.

Restaurants and hotels, in Jamaica and around the world, that carry Magnum should put it right in front of customers so they can see it and have an opportunity to experience this new brand. After all Magnum has a story to tell.

Parting Shot:

The folks at TS&L have done a very nice job taking care of the Jamaican brand, and its presentation.

The glass bulb is a nice extra touch. The red and blue branding and the bottle design are things worth checking out, and you will love the liquid for more reasons than it being a Jamaican product.

Jamaican Magnum Tonic Wine Review 2:

If I had to choose a favorite, I would have to put my money back on the original Jamaican Magnum Tonic Wine.

Magnum Tonic Wine is a nice treat and one of the unique products that come from Jamaica. It’s the Caribbean’s answer to America’s Jack Daniel’s and Europe’s Grappa.

Magnum Tonic Wine is too good for the newbie, but I’ve found experienced drinkers to have a great time with this product.
