Wow, this is a very nice one from Kill Devil. I really admire them because they're whisky makers and they can definitely finish rums as well. I have a huge selection of their rums and most are really good, especially if you look at the price tag. The nose is heavy with lots of fruits, chocolate and rubber. The palate is wonderfully balanced and complex with fruit, oak, caramel ad a lot of smoke, did I mention smoke? A dry and slightly bitter palate but in a god way. The finish is lasting for a very, very long time with a lot of smoke taking you to vanilla, lime and a tad of rubber.

A well done rum with lots of spices such as pepper and baking spices. It’s not too complex but what it does it does well ☺️
