"There's a savory, earthy nose on this rum that is reminiscent of aged leather and mild tobacco. The weight on the palate is surprisingly light considering the aggressive and masculine flavors. There's burnt wood, steak sauce, and sautéed mushrooms all showing up. The catch is how everything stays in balance with a subtle red berry note that carries through the long finish."
