This would be a solid choice for a 5-ingredient tropical drink.

After visiting the distillery the taste of the Bully Boy became, for me, the taste of Boston. The rhum is very nice with a little Sprite. It is lightly spiced. A taste to come back to.

I love the Bully Boy white rum but found their dark rum just okay. It has decent flavor but isn't very smooth. Fine for mixing but too expensive to use as a mixer and not smooth enough for the rocks.

There are two up and coming rums from New England (Bully Boy, Thomas Tew), but they're not ready to share with the masses yet. This rum is only available in New England and getting it shipped to certain states could be a pain. Rums distilled in the New England still have a long way to go before being mentioned in the same sentence as rums from New Orleans or Brooklyn at this point, none the less Caribbean / Central America / South America.

Anyway, this rum is very unique, I'd drink it in a very simple cocktail, we don't want to ruin the essence of those vanilla tasting notes (it's there, trust me). I can't put my finger on it, but it feels light (not heavy, that is) for a dark rum, but taste a little too alchol-y and boozy for my liking straight up or on the rocks. You should consider having it in a daiquiri, rum and coke or something else that's simple...but I promise you before you know it, you may feel a little light in the loafers.

On a good note, it finishes nicely at the back of your throat some how considering. Definitely a pleasant surprise when I took a trip to Rhode Island this summer. Now that I have two bottles, I'll try it in some classic rum cocktails or rum-ified bourbon cocktails for good measure.
