How does this rum taste?

Kill Devil is an interesting TDL rum with prominent toffee, vanilla, and mint notes. It’s aromatic but lacks the freshness of other 2000s TDLs. Alcohol is quite present, but it’s a unique, if divisive, experience.

“Interestingly, the toffee note dominates here at first, before the tropical fruits and some mint are added on the palate. Interesting, aromatically versatile, but without the freshness of other TDLs from the 2000s, as the toffee flavors mentioned at the beginning and the alcohol are still too present.”

“More on the „classic“ column still side of things with roasted and dark notes in focus. Some dirt is present, yet not much in terms of fruits and/or herbal notes on the nose. While it feels a bit thin on the palate (tastewise) it is still quite alcohol forwards. While not devastatingly bad, this clearly is in the lower tier of early 2000s TDLs.”

“Very mysterious rum. A T.D.L but after a longer time in the glass the Caronino notes come out easily. I'm torn as to whether I think it's a great rum or just average. But right now the wacky outweighs the average. But it needs a long time in the glass, then the alcoholic taste gradually disappears. Tasted another 2003 Samaroli and Nobilis. In my opinion, this one is not at all comparable to these profiles. It somehow picks me up. Edit: went through the obligatory CubaLibre test again. I still find it interesting. A slightly different flavor than Mixer, but a pretty good one. I like the taste. More like the slightly dirty CubaLibre.”
