Great colour and a softer nose. A drier rum with nice hints from the whiskey cask it is aged in. Caramel an toffee in the flavour but not as pronouced as with others in this class. Where this Rum truly is exceptional is in its smoothness.
For the price this is a great rum and one you should buy if you get the chance.
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.
