Enjoyable with a unique flavor
29 Jul '17
Complex array of different notes going on here. From butterscotch to vanilla to cocoa. Dried fruit, tea, oak, tobacco and sandlewood. Does have some alcohol burn in the back of the throats which is fine in my book.
I like sipping this neat but mixed and this rum will hold its own as well.
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.
