Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Love the LA based Lost Spirits rums, can taste the creativity through science. If you get to tour the distillery, it's Disneyland for adults.
I got to taste this at a rum festival recently. It's my first (and so far only) introduction to the products and collaborations of Lost Spirits Distillery (if this name doesn't ring a bell, look it up—the Cocktail Wonk has an excellent write-up). Hadn't heard of them when I encountered the Rational Spirits table, and the rep was telling me a little about the alchemy behind the "accelerated aging process." Maybe it was my skepticism, but I didn't care for this rum much at all. It was sweet, yes, and strong, but something about it just tasted /different/, and off-putting. Unskilled use of pot-still distillates with this experimental aging technique? Who knows. Others like this rum, and people simply rave about Lost Spirits, so I'd really like to try their solo releases.
Would love to see other reviews on this page :)
