I think You should try to create Site Columns on the root site. At this moment, I can't tell You if is working - but that's a way how I would try to solve the case.

Hello @Dominic77 


you can use Managed Metadata, it's a central store for tags, so you will create a column on each site, but you can use the same, central, tags:


or you can use the Content Type Hub, this will publish your created column on each site:

Hello @MantasSe 


site columns are only available on the site, only for the lists on the same site or sub-sites from this site. But when you have different sites, then to use Content Type Hub or an other solution mentioned in your linked post.
