Only spiced rum that I have found to be a decent sipper and not just a mixer. Pleasant balance of coffee and vanilla flavors with just a hint of oak, cloves, sweetness from molasses and something earthy that I haven't figured out yet. Definately deviated from the vanilla and cherry flavors of most spiced rums. Aftertaste is a little disappointing... not much of a bite from the ethanol. Will buy again when I see it. Interested in what cocktails I might be able to enhance with it. Excellent with Coca-Cola, and definitely makes various Mai Tai's better (Royal Hawaiian as the top float rum... would be better if it was a higher proof... more ethanol bite).
