A rum from Seattle, Washington. A long way from the traditional Caribbean scene.

Grunge rum?


Actually it's fairly decent rum. It has potential to be much better.

The rum has a hue akin to apple juice...sort of a straw color with hints of gold.

The aroma in my snifter reveals sweetness which is confirmed upon tasting. Sugared a bit?

The label indicates the rum was aged only 6 months which accounts for the light color. What it was aged in is not specified on the label or on their website. Not much specific information on either. There does seem an oak undertone to it. I truly wonder how this rum would tasted if allowed to age a full 5 years or more.

Smooth enough to be a sipper for some but I feel it works best in mixed drinks.

Sweeter than I would have thought. A bit of an afterburn, but for under $20, not too bad (and the rating reflects part price on this one); but still better mixed than straight. A 5.5 in my book.

Enjoyed a bottle of 3 Howls Golden Rum while vacationing in Las Vegas. Very nice and unique bottle and label design. Very light golden color. Pure alcohol and a hint of oak to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end being so dry. Mix this up with your favorite soda.

Picked this up on a whim, and boy am I glad I did! There's spiced honey all over this, on the nose, in the palette, as well as some brown butter and a little smoke. In spite of the very strong honey presence, this rum really isn't that sweet. There's also a strong mustiness present throughout the whole thing, which may sound unpleasant, but really just serves to solidify this rum as its own character. I was not expecting to like this, but this is really one to remember!

Good, tastes as if it is pot stilled which is what I prefer
