“On The Rocks: On the nose moderate fruit and with mild fruit, floral and oak notes. There is a subtle sweetness hinting at some complexity. Taste has a moderate spice with a brief alcohol and burn. Opens up with a more complex profile of Burbon notes and spice with a lingering warmth. Finish is long with a lasting spice and warmth. This is quite a complex rum considering the aging. This is an exciting rum that is very unique and enjoyable. Mixed Pepsi Zero: On the nose dusty Pepsi Zero with a mild spice and bourbon notes. Taste is smoother with continued bourbon and spice notes. Finish is short and smooth, and still enjoyable with some complexity.”
