This is quite nice - light orange, oak, toffee, coconut, butterscotch, spice, oak, and light tannins - it’s blended together very well. The palate continues, with a nice thread of vanilla, mixed roased nuts, and slight acidity. This is very, very drinkable – it might be a leader for a casual rum for me, especially given the price and the fact that it’s not too sweet. The finish is lightly spicy and oak.
Value: High, at 37$.
