Tasting Notes

"While certainly not as nuanced as some of their other marks, no reason to kick this out of the glass. The smokiness from the charred barrels comes through, as does quite a bit of dark brown sugar and tropical fruits. It's not much of a sipping rum, but works a charm in a punch or as the gold component to a tiki cocktail. "
