I’m on a personal mission here in Singapore to try all of the flavors that I haven’t seen before. I recently managed to snag a pint of Urban Bourbon. Here is my honest review!
Sweetness balance: 7/10
The balance here is decent, but to be right on spot I would have preferred just a tad more sweetness.
The freezer at Giant Hypermarket here in Singapore must have been too cold. After my usual 20 min in room temperature method, the ice cream still had an almost ice-like texture. After a bit more time though, were on track. The texture delivers big time on this one! Lots of variation and a good mix of elements.
Lives up to description: 10/10
I could easily taste all of the described elements.
Other considerations (creative flavor pairing, innovative, boldness, etc): 5/10
I have mixed feelings here. It does everything it says, but still I find it a little too ordinary. The flavors blend almost too well, and mask each other too much. Nothing really sticks out or leaves a lasting impression. Unless you are a big fan of bourbon or rum-raisin like taste, there are better options – despite the great texture.
Overall summary: 31/40 points, which equals a 77.5% rating. Worth a try for the conservative who wants to play it safe. The daredevil will find it a little to timid.
