Sugar: 0 GPL. This rum is very smooth and dry. Strong flavours from the whiskey casks that it has been aged in are evident. I can taste a bit of nutmeg, caramel, a bit of oak, and a hint of cinnamon but that is probably the whiskey cask effect. In the glass it has a caramel color and has a nice wood and vanilla aroma. It has a soft taste in your mouth with a good burn and a nice lingering glow in your throat. It has some similarities to the Appleton 21, but not as smooth as the 21. From time to time I will mix this with a sweeter rum like Diplomatico to cut down the sweetness of the DRE.
