I really liked the 2015 Captain's Choice, so I was eager to try the 2016 hoping it might be more of the same. This is even better!
This is 66.6%, vs 62.9% for the 2015, but this tastes smoother. It is also a bit sweeter, perhaps because it was aged 18 years instead of 21 years, and has a little less oakiness. Like the 2015, I don't care for the bottle, as the wax is difficult to remove, and you can't see through it to see how much you have left. But it sure is tasty!
Smells and tastes of caramel, molasses, and spice, with just a hint of oak. Very nice!
Phenomenal rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a super rare Tres Hombres 2016 Edition 15 Captains Choice XVIII Dominican Republic. Beautiful light brown ceramic bottle and label design. Light golden color. Explosion of flavors to your nose and palate. Plenty of heat at 66.6% alcohol content. Limited to 250 bottles.
