I'm always interested in US rums, but to date, the Papas Pilar and Koloa are the only decent ones I've tried. This one sounded interesting because like the Papas Pilar Dark, it is also a maple rum.
This tastes more like a sugar cane rum than a molasses rum (I generally prefer molasses). Smells and tastes of charred oak with a small hint of bourbon, and a little maple (nothing close to the Papas Pilar). It's a bit on the dry side, and rather thin (as opposed to creamy). To me, this rum isn't smooth enough to be 45% abv; it comes across harsh at that strength. Might make a nice mixer, but I rate rums based on their taste straight.
