Lovely Rum like all Travelers rums, I started with one barrel then five barrel which was 5 year old now this kill Devil which says on the bottle 9 years single cask. Very nice drink does have a slight burn but only when you swallow it, not over strong so you can drink it at your leisure without making a fool of yourself. I can't say anything about the taste of the wood or anything else as all I taste is RUM and this is a good one.
One year (and different batch) can make the difference. The fresh alcohol smell (in good sense), light taste with slight burn, you can taste both the honey and the oak cask. This is great rum for those who like it little bit rougher, but still with full taste and sweet tones.
