I'd heard of Privateer and wanted to try a New England rum. Additionally, I wanted a Pot Still Lightly Aged Rum besides Smith & Cross to use. I put it in this category based on Smuggler's Cove definitions & the label which says it was aged no less than 2 years in American oak. When smelled I get oak and vanilla. When tasted I get the same. I sipped it alongside Richland Georgia Rum which is the go-to rum I judge everything else by. Privateer Reserve tastes fairly one-dimensional, slightly sweet, decent alcohol burn, and mildly bitter aftertaste that's not unpleasant. I get no funk or fruity flavors, which is fine. It's a straightforward lightly aged pot still rum. I'd consider it in a rum old fashioned but not sipped straight. However, I think I'll primarily mix cocktails with it.

Tasted at Laka Lono 4/27/22 as part of Kill Devil Rum Club
Flavor - coconut and clementine
This is a very bright rum
special note that this was a very cussy rum club meeting, but unclear if that is related to this particular rum

Tasted at Laka Lono on 4/27/22. Pours a rich gold color. Slight aroma of honey. Mild banana flavor. Cotton candy. Brown sugar. A bit of funk emerges late. Good.

Probably the smoothest rum I've ever had. Tasting notes light vanilla and oak, almost imperceptibly so. I would give this to anyone that doesn't like those hard funky tastes and still wants more than a filtered cane taste.
