Tasting Notes

"It's rich and almost earthy, with sweet and peppery spices. Vanilla, brown sugar and coffee add sweetness and complexity. Finishes a bit hot to be a pure sipping rum, but there's a good reason bartenders the world over reach for it to make a variety of cocktails. Decent stuff for the price."
