Not to be had alone, it’s ok in cocktails but all the promise of interesting aromas leads to disappointment when actually drinking it. Color is nice, aromas are complex with vanilla as the lead, but it never comes through on the palate. Unwanted grassiness and imbalance are the primary attributes. I really wanted to like it.

Did not buy a bottle, just sampled at bar. Kinda glad I did. Certainly not bad, but rather thin for a sipper, better as a mixer IMO

I love this rum, and am glad/lucky I found it in the random liquor store I stopped in on a cross country driving trip. I have yet to have seen it since.

This is a good bottle, kind of hard to find in these parts but worth treasuring once you track some down.
Keep it simple. Daiquiri with a splash of allspice dram and you are all. Set.

To be honest it’s just ok. I got interested in this rum after hearing it was commissioned by Death & Co. and that it’s made in Trinidad so I really expected a lot more out of it. There’s not much personality to it which may have been the point of it was intended for cocktails. Not sure I’d buy this again.

Great rum that packs a strong punch from higher abv. Carmel, oak, spice, allbalanced perfectly. Amazing job

This is my favorite rum of all time. As of this moment... Ohio has stopped selling this rum. Shame.

Remember not everyone's tastings are the same. I rated this low because I couldn't get any real flavors from it.

Not a highlight of my night, a bit rough for the list.

It's a young rum and it's 49% abv, so it's harsher than other rums in it's price range. But for as light as it is, it offers a lot of complexity with notes of grass and salt air.
