"The coffee aroma matches the coffee color of the rum. Some caramel and a soft smoke nestles pleasantly blending well in the rum. As you taste, you'll find that it isn't sweet and cloying and but more bitter and dry. This isn't particularly funky, but has a nice sweet and smoky balance. This will be a nice addition to punches calling for dark rum. "
