Manitou Passage Rum is a white, proud of its Blackstrap Molasses raw materials and with a real nice sip, rum. The nose is sweet, molasses, very light vanilla and I catch just plain sugar. Nice. But, as a white, this is waiting to be mixed. This would be great with Coke (I tried it with Coke Zero) but please don't let me stop you. I liked the caramel outburst with the cola. This rum is at home in any mixed drink - what ever it may be.
