Tasting Notes

"The aroma from this rum socks the imbiber in the nose with heavy doses of acetone and turpentine. The chemical cacophony is raw and fails to provide any hint of wood aging. On the palate the notes from the aroma hold true while the alcohol ignites the tongue with raw ethanol, sulphur and acetone fading into a bitter finish. This rum is definitely not for sipping neat and is best used as a cocktail ingredient along with other heavy flavors: Ex. Cola"
