I am not sure qhat to make of this one. The atart is a little on the hot side, which it shouldnt be at 100 proof. No burn, but definitely starts off with a head of steam.
Others have mentioned cocoa, i,can see that. Unsweetened that rolls into a nutmeg and cinnamon flavor with a heavy tobbaco finish.
Not an every day pour, but the uniqueness of the profile makea it very interesting,and non typical in my opinion.
Cocao in your mouth. The 50 % alcohol is perfect in this rum. Just enough sweetness. Liked it alot!
High proof (50,5% vol), supposedly additive free rum at a very reasonoble price. The nose is teaming with spicy leather, cocoa powder, oak and perhaps a small dose of varnish, plums and cherries as well. On the palate I pick up a slightly surprising sweetness, akin to what you might get from a matured port wine, reminding me of ripe red fruits. The is followed by rounded leather, tobacco and cocoa, fading into a tingling aftertaste of oak, black pepper and nutmeg. The alcohol is well integrated.
I’m slightly suspious towards the sweetness. If no sugar has been added, the maturation might have taken place in “wet” barrels, perhaps previously containing port wine. Under any circumstance, not a bad glass and a good place to start if you feel like trying on higher proof sipping rum.
