Nice complexity and flavor to boot

Smooth, with a touch of sweetness, the lengthy time able to rest in the barrel allows for the plethora of varying notes to come out. Some spiciness to it which, counteracts nicely with the rums sweeter side, little burn and a lasting impression of what rum should taste like.
I wouldn't advice mixing this rum, as their are less expensive alternatives to this. Enjoy neat or with and ice cube and let it be your 5'oclock here and now!
Very unique and in a ghod way.

This is a well-aged rum and when I mean well-aged I mean it is well-balanced and flavorful without being overpowering. And it is SMOOTH. There is some sweetness at first taste but that turns into a spiciness which tingles the tongue somewhat. It took me a little while...and a few sips...to figure out one flavor seemed to be nutmeg. A nice warmth rather than a burn which is common for an aged rum. A mild sweetness one tastes initially as well on the aftertaste. And you can definitely detect the oak but not so much as to make give it a bitterness. This is an outstanding rum that some would prefer as a sipping rum. I prefer it as a mixer even though it is smooth. The flavors really enhance Coke Zero.
