South Sea Gold rum is produced from the first pressings of sugarcane sourced in Northern Queensland Australia. It's distilled in both pot and column stills that are later blended and aged for 2 year in American oak casks.
The bottling is fairly eloquent and eye catching very distinct bottling. In the glass it is very light and has quickly forming legs running down the glass.
The aroma is subdued I get distinct hits of mainly honey and lesser vanilla. No apparent alcohol scent.
The taste which is most important (enjoyed pure from the bottle, neat): very light taste Quite smooth leaves the palate very quickly almost as if it were water. I get a hit of light smoke and spice which then fades to a honey vanilla with larger sips.
I got this rum on sale for a very low price so I picked up 2 bottles. I was double the price at a store across town.
