"The aroma shows a fine blend of barrel spices, grassy sweet sugarcane, and a touch of copper. The rum is tangy and leans heavily on the bittersweet side with a moderately light body. This would really show better mixed rather than drunk neat, but if you are into the bitter, by all means, sip away. The other elements in the rum adds depth and dimension, but not much sweet."
