I had read about the Tanduay brand online and thought it interesting. Surprisingly I found it in a liquor store in tiny Eastpoint, Florida so I got a bottle. It is definitely not like the Caribbean rums that I am learning more about. Its flavor is heavy on a caramel and has a strong burn. Could be used for some neat or on the rock but works better for me in sweet mixed drinks. A bit off in flavor for my personal tastes.
