The flavor of the spices are strong and tantalizing, a wonderful spiced rum for sipping or mixing
This could really stand some time in a barrel, perhaps a decade or two would work to mellow it out. I bought it on a whim looking for a unique spiced rum. It is certainly that.
DO NOT mix with anything that will take badly to a BOLD infusion of clove. If you like spiced rum to blend smoothly with coke, this ain't it.
I'm a staunch advocate of green consumerism, so I have mixed feelings. It's awesome distillers are experimenting with organic spirits. But it takes a long time to nurture a great rum, might take a little longer for contender ecologically produced brands to find their way to market. In this instance, the folks at Greenbar Collective make their rum by speeding up the ageing with a new oxygenation process, claiming it makes it as smooth as if it sat in a charred barrel for a decade. Trust me, it doesn't, still tastes like moonshine.
