Jason
Jason,
The nose resembles a tawny port with the caramel and plum and burns a bit. The mouthfeel is also thick, with a smooth, light molasses taste with a spicy finish.

Banana, some vanilla and dried fruits and a real earthy, leathery note on the note. Sweet and syrupy with dried fruits, banana and baking spices, quite creamy on the palate too.

Color is dark amber with red hues. Nose is tobacco, with notes of mollases. First sip is a little thin texturally, but full of flavors: dried fruits, a rye like spice, oak, and cinnamon. Finishes with additional baking spices that linger. Overall, quite nice.

Very nice. Initial blast of oak, cane sugar and molasses in the nose. Up front more molasses with lots of fruit in the middle and a strong oak finish. Very smooth throughout with a bit of a bitter finish. I’m sure it would be good with ginger beer. We had a bottle of Cock and Bull ready, but didn’t want to dilute the depth of this fine spirit.

Not a rum man, but this is nice. It could change my mind.

Just an amazing sipping rum. It is complex yet drinks smooth and easy. This tastes like more of a cognac that what one would expect from a rum.

It is an outstanding, rich, corking rum with a sweet birth, a complex life that leads to a long & mellow death.

Unquestionably my favorite rum of all time. It tastes like you are drinking an oak barrel with a hint of sweetness. So smooth, and so rich. I'm actually sipping some right now.
