While taking a half day bus tour of Aruba, one of our stops was The Arubian Taste, a shop with a multitude of flavored rums. Good thing we had a tour guide as they are currently opperating out of their home and not a store because of Covid. Miss Marsha greeted and welcomed us into her shop. It was filled with a head turning variety of delicious concoctions, all personally blended by her husband. Miss Marsha gave me a tasting menu but said that it was only a small portion of the rums available. Boy, she wasn’t joking! I promised I would limit myself to only two bottles and it was extremely difficult to decide which flavors would make the cut as they were all delicious. Some were basic flavors, some were a bit more whimsical, but they all were delicious! I settled on a limoncello cream and the raspberry white chocolate. I would definitely recommend visiting The Arubian Taste if you visit the island. Thanks, Miss Marsha, for a wonderful experience and for sharing your story and the fantastic, flavored rums!

For the past several years, my family has enjoyed The Arubian Taste rum tasting class at La Cabana. Jerome and his staff make this class both educational and FUN! We enjoy the introduction for the 30+ rums that we taste. You get a real sense for the passion Jerome brings to creating his rums AND for the island of Aruba. We always order bottles to enjoy during our stay and some to bring home. The Arubian Taste carefully wraps your bottles for safe travel and delivers them to us later that evening. We love having some aloe, ginger and coffee rums at home to remind us of Aruba when we return home. We book this rum tasting experience first thing each year when we arrive on the island. It's one of our favorite activities every time we are in Aruba. Thank you to Jerome, Marcia and The Arubian Taste for sharing your yummy rum with us. See you next April!

We went to their place which is easily reachable by car. Marcia was super nice, and the rum excellent. After about 45 min of tasting, we bought 4 bottles of half a liter each for a total of $60.

Overall great experience.

The owners have relocated their entire stock to a small shop next to their home. I do not recall the street address (sorry), but our tour driver knew where their place was and took us there (it's in a neighborhood). We had a great time and sampled many rums and other items. So many varieties to choose from! Very tasty. We purchased a dozen different items and enjoyed some of them back at the Rui Palace Aruba before our departure. We'll be back in April and we'll just call the number on their website and get directions. www.http://buyarubarum.com. These people are so nice. Please go out of your way to support them. I know we will.

We have been visiting Arubian Taste for years, since we stumbled upon it on our very first visit to Aruba almost 20 years ago. The owners are absolutely amazing and knowlegable about their products and I love how much they let you taste to find what you'll love. I've walked out of my start of vacation tasting very tipsy and very happy! No matter how many times I taste the different flavors that the offer, I always return to my #1 favorite, their Coconut Rum. Even my mom, who doesn't like coconut, or drinking rum alone, can sip a glass of this straight, and love it. We usually buy a few bottles on a visit, and then our chosen juice at the store and mix some wonderful drinks in our condo before heading off for dinner each night. At home I love to add their coconut rum to sprite and orange juice or just to some fresca, it's very refreshing, but also wonderful alone. I cannot be without this in my home, it's just that good!

Whenever someone I know is going to Aruba, I always tell them to stop here, try out the rum and bring some home, and everyone who has taken my advice has returned with rave reviews (and once a bottle of coconut rum, just for me!). Give them a try, I don't see how you can possibly be disappointed!

Amazing taste, delivered to our door. You have to try the banana rum and Almond Joy! Some are more “high octane” than others but all are tasty and less expensive than the stores. They took a card payment over the phone. Give them a call!

Had a recommendation to try this place to get some authentic rums...it did not disappoint. Julie was spectacular in providing the background of each flavor and super fun to make the experience great. This is a must stop when your on the island. Bringing a bunch of new rums home!! And a bonus....we got a ride back to our hotel!

Absolutely must do while you’re in Aruba! Marcia has every kind of run you can think of and it all tasted amazing. We were able to bring home a lot of souvenirs for family and she bubble wrapped everything so it would make it home safe. She was very kind and told us many stories and she even sifted through her collection of dollar bills so that I could take a picture of the one I left behind 5 years ago. I can’t recommend her enough!

Ps. Get any of the cream rums…absolutely delicious!!

My daughter and I happened upon The Arabian Taste by accident. We were standing outside waiting for our Horse Tour. When they pulled up to ask if we were their people. Marcia handed me her card and we ended up calling them right after the horse tour. Marcia and Jerome are incredible. This is must see and they have moved operations to their home - its actually not in their physical home. They allow you to taste all of the rums no minimum or max. We got a little buzzed and that was great because I have been to other tastings and you get three to four tastings and then you go to their shop. This is a tasting location and shop all in one. I suggest you come here the same day you arrive so you can bring back their rum and have a great night/week drinking the rums. Many different flavors as well. Have fun!

What a fun place to check out some delightful & delicious rum! There's quite a variety of flavors and unlimited tasting. Julie, our hostess, was fun and helpful...and we got a kick out of her being from the same area of PA as us! I don't know how many flavors we tasted, but it took some thought to decide what to buy! If you want to take some home in your checked luggage, Julie does a great job of wrapping it in bubble wrap. They also have some yummy hot sauces, old license plates, and some amusing jewelry. It's in a small plaza and definitely worth seeking out!
