Pure Jamaican pot still with plenty of funk on the nose - overripe bananas, molasses. At 46.5% ABV, this is perfect for adding character to cocktails.
I recently had a chance to try this and was not overly impressed with it. Yes, it had a funky aroma and an interesting taste and burn. I guess I am not used to the complexity of this rum and will stick to a more less funky rum in the future.
I'm not wild about the fact that the only thing separating this from the Gold offering is a bit of caramel color, but I understand the market need. And here, the caramel adds visual character to the drink without over-sweetening it or dramatically altering the flavor. This rum has loads of molasses character already, with the pleasant funk that many here have mentioned, that will make your drink stand out. I love this in tiki drinks, and it can even be sipped neat, if you're in the mood for a little kick. Dark as it is, it's very well balanced. Thanks, Ed!
This rum is not for the beginner! This is for people looking to explore the funky classic side of rum. The pot still method gives such interesting and exciting flavors. If you are doing any tiki style drinks this is a must have to bring out the rum flavor in fruit/mix heavy drinks.
