Sergeant Classick Gold Hawaiian Rum
Sergeant Classick // California, USA
Sergeant Classick uses a copper alembic pot still obtained from Jean-Louis Stupfler in Bordeaux, France, which in most cases would have traveled a considerably shorter distance to a nearby Cognac distillery. Instead, it went to Mountain View, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Once there, Sergeant Classick is made from 100% Hawaiian molasses, sourced from the last remaining sugar mill on the island of Kauai. Sergeant Classick is named after master distiller Dave Classick Sr., a Vietnam War veteran.

"The nose is heavy on molasses, with a bit of a funky, hogo tinge, butterscotch, and then an earthier, musty side, with cloves, allspice, and bits of floral aromas. The palate offers more molasses, oak, and spice, with a buttery, creamy back end. This leads to a short, crisp finish, with hints of black pepper and spice, more of the earthy side, and more of this rum's backbone, the funky molasses and butterscotch."
