Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Smooth with no after taste or fire. Great single cask. Sugar, most definitely but smooth and less sugary than the Plantation 20th anniversary rum.
Like Zacapa, this is an aged rum from Guatemala that is sweet, bold, and balanced. Unlike Zacapa, it makes no misleading age statement, nor is it available anywhere but Smugger's Cove. And like most (every?) Plantation rum, it has undergone secondary aging in Pierre Ferrand ex-Cognac barrels in France. Quite tasty. If you like Zacapa, you'll love Contrabandista.
