      My Go to silver rum. Found this gem and it’s now a staple in my cabinet. Nose is full of the tropics meets an apothecary. Lots of stone fruits, pineapple, herbs and potent hogo. Palette is super clean, super funk filled. Great pineapple and apple notes, followed by aromatics and herbs... almost an agave note at the end. Finish is long and amazing. This is truly a great supper and an amazing addition to any rum cocktail.

      Bright and clear, modest weight but leaves decadent legs cascading down the glass, surprising considering its low proof and probable youth. Hogo slaps the nose, married quite appealingly to a bouquet of young tropical fruits and herbal notes. Pineapple, banana peel. Oregano. 100% agree with a previous taster’s tarragon. Brown rice? Simultaneously assertive, complex, yet smooth as silk. Clean, young, and bright. Can inhale all day. Really nice. Uh oh. The palate is great too. A dash of sweet syrup and pineapple juice tangoes with the aromatics from the nose, then settles across the tongue with bitter lime pith, mint, and a touch of saccharine. Thin vein of Tahitian vanilla. Finally, those herbs return and settle across the tongue, throwing the finish off marginally with a bitter, earthy vibe instead of a tropical sunset. A modest critique, at most. Did we just become best friends? Yep! This is one heck of a lot of affordable fun. Wow. Leave it to E&A Scheer. If you dig young, expressive rum: this is your jam to drink neat. If you dig clean, charismatic rum as cocktail fodder: this is your jam to shake with fruit juice. If you dig neither of those things: just give me one sunny Saturday and I can probably overwrite your operating system.

      A very interesting white rum to try on its own, but even better in cocktails. In a daiquiri, the caramel sweetness carries through the middle while the funky Jamaican and Arrack flavors round it out and make for the most deliciously complex daiquiri I've ever had. For sipping, you get tarragon leaf, green banana, hogo, pineapple, and lime rind on the finish. Just a beautifully done rum. Highly recommended.
