I saw this rum on TV and the fact that it is made here in Georgia. Iwas taken back by the price! I made the purchase and went home for a sip. It hit me more like sipping whiskey than rum. At $48.00 a fifth, I don't plan to mix it. It is a high quality product that is worth saving for a special evening.
Very smooth and sweet with hints of caramel and sugar cane. I prefer to sip RR neat but it is also great on the rocks and in mixed drinks. My favorite rum thus far.
Avast! This be a fierce but confusing dry rum! She smells like a traditional rum, sweet with caramel, vanilla, and oak, but there be a hint of funk hidin' below deck. Hang me for a lewd cur! I had no idea Jamaica extended into Georgia! There be plenty of alcohol and burn on this wench, but it takes a dozen or so sips to get to know her. She not be terribly sweet, and most of the caramel, vanilla, and oak that lured you in are hiding behind the alcohol, but she will funk you up. The burn does not last long, and there be no specific finish, but she be worth the ride. She be a solid rum that blurs the line between rum and bourbon/whiskey. Or maybe that be what she wants me to think... arrgh!
I had a high expectation due to nice smell which is full of wood, vanilla, caramel and tobaccoo. But taste is a little bit disapointing. Has similiar flavours profile like smell but weaker, not that complex with harsh finish.
Helles Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase wird der Riechkolben zu beginn richtig deftig von Holzspiessen gepfählt. Vanilleeis und Karamellbonbons mit Hobelspänen von frisch getoasteten Eichenfässern. Verregneter moosiger Waldboden und eine frisch gemähte Blumenwiese weichen die Hölzer etwas auf.
Am Gaumen weich und elegant zu beginn. Schnell verschwinden die Geschmacksknospen hinter einer Bretterwand und lässt die anderen Aromen abprallen. Hinter dem Holzwall sind feine blumig-grasige Noten auszumachen wie bei einem Rhum Agricole. Geräuchertes, angebranntes Karamell mit einer seelenlosen Vanillecreme und ein paar kandierten Früchtchen schwirren auch noch irgendwo herum.
Im Abgang dörrt einem das Holz den Mund aus. Karamell und Vanille verweilen kurz und lassen ein wenig Salz zurück.
Ein sehr schwieriger Rum, eher für Agricole Geniesser die auch ein rauchendes Lagerfeuer lieben.

Light amber in the glass.
In the nose, the olfactory bulb is impaled at the beginning really hearty of wooden skewers. Vanilla ice cream and caramel candy with shavings from freshly toasted oak barrels. Rainy mossy forest floor and a freshly mowed flower meadow soften the woods somewhat.
Soft and elegant on the palate to start. Quickly the taste buds disappear behind a wall of boards, bouncing off the other flavors. Behind the wooden wall, fine floral-grassy notes can be discerned like a Rhum Agricole. Smoked, burnt caramel with a soulless vanilla cream and a few candied fruits buzz around somewhere as well.
On the finish, the wood parches your mouth. Caramel and vanilla linger briefly, leaving a bit of salt behind.
A very difficult rum, more for Agricole connoisseurs who also love a smoking campfire.
