This is a bourbon mans rum. Dorky way to say if you like bourbon the odds are you will like this. It’s distinctly rum but the mouthfeel, the wood sugars, the color even is more reminiscent of a solid straight bourbon. Oh yeah and the 12 years it spent in bourbon barrels probably helps. Not helps. Strike that. Replace “Helps” with “Hath made it so”. Or “hath rendered it thusly”. Or if those English word abominations I offered are far too course and distasteful, make up your own, sheesh, get off my back. I am so overwhelmed lately by all these strawmen who follow me around critiquing everything I write.
