Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The dark color lets us know that we can expect some cask influence, and this holds true. But the wood is very nicely balanced, and the mix of woody notes, spices from the rum as well as the natural sweetness that the rum displays makes for a very nice combination in my opinion. I have one bottle open and bought 2 more. Currently (mid 2019) still many of the 147 bottles available, for about 60 bucks this is a great price. The high rating also reflects the great price/value ratio!
