Tiki Lovers Dark Rum
Tiki Lovers // Jamaica
Launched in 2011 by the team behind The Bitter Truth bitters and liqueurs, this overproof dark rum is made from a blend of various rums from the Caribbean. These include unaged pot still rums from Jamaica's Hampden Estate and aged rum from Barbados' Foursquare Distillery. In addition, aged Trinidadian rum is included as well as unaged column still rums from Trinidad and Guyana. It's bottled at 57% ABV.
Dark RumAKA Black Rum. Usually aged (but not always) and has additional caramel-coloring added to provide the dark/black color. Some are distilled from blackstrap molasses. No specific type or size barrel required for aging nor is there a set time required for aging in most countries with a few exceptions.
"Look for aromas of rich dark chocolate, cloves and a touch of funk. It's similarly engulfing on the palate, with notes of caramel, baking spice and chocolate ganache. This rum would work just as well in a spirit forward cocktail like a Manhattan or Old Fashioned as it would be over ice."
