Nice inexpensive limited batch white rum
22 Nov '15
I heard many good things about the Siesta Key rums produced in limited quantities from the family-run Sarasota-based distillery. For those of you interested in the geography Siesta Key isn't somewhere near Key West but actually is about 12 miles from the location of where Siesta Key rum is made. The rum itself is crisp rum with definite sugar cane flavor. A couple of Caribbean sources recommended all of the Siesta Key rums and I can understand why. It is indeed a good white rum where the flavors hit you before the burn. Not a harsh white rum and recommended for mixed drinks as well as colas. I like it in Coke Zero. Currently they have three choices (white, spiced, and gold). I wonder if they will be working on an overproof. Eventually I expect aged rums.
