This American-bottled (from Trinidad & Tobago) dark rum has a great looking bottle and a very nice commercial playing on television right now. It is a great sipping rum that we have enjoyed (as you can see the content missing from our picture). Dark amber in colour, almost cola-looking. At 47% ABV, you can smell the alcohol, but before that, a nice scent of vanilla, molasses, caramel and notes of other spices. In the mouth, it is pretty smooth with a little warmth going down. A touch of plum, mild molasses and light fruits. The spices are very light in the mix and only felt in the finish with the vanilla lingering in the aftertaste. A very nice sipping dark and warming rum which is not over-spiced. Highly recommended.
