Enjoyed a glass of Raw and unfiltered rum at the first legal rum distillery in Key West FL. You will get the salt barrel flavor on the rum. The salt is very subtle to the nose, but stronger on the taste test. Mild burn at the end. The real question will be, is it worth $58 per bottle.

Full, rich flavor. Goes down easy on the rocks. Smoth. A very good USA rum.

Flavorful really with a hint of vanilla maple. Unfiltered and aged

I cite this as a custom rum due to the fact the barrels are charred and cast into the ocean for a day before filling with sugar based rum. This rum appears a bit cloudy, since it is unfiltered, but the aroma is pleasant with a bit of ocean breeze scent due to the salt (I believe).
Interesting first taste. My first taste was of a rum that has definitely soaked up the wood char (Woodsy) flavor and the saltiness of the ocean. Nice taste, different, but since I wanted to try this rum for awhile, I was not disappointed. The aftertaste, is of a young, vanilla, sugar based rum that hasn’t quite grown up yet (aged). I do wish it was an older batch.
I liked this rum straight. And, I’ll sip it slowly and not in one night. Go buy a bottle. Next try is their 105 Simonton when I can get my hands on one.

Bought in store, while on holiday in key west. Nice color. Sweet aftertaste with a kick. Only tried it on the rocks. Went down smooth

Allegedly, the liquid is stored in barrels that have sat in waters off Key West (I was told in the harbor by the salesperson, but that seems a bit unsanitary), so there is a faint briny flavor to this buttery, slightly sweet aged rum. Not briny in the agricole or charanda style spirits, but salty… anyhow, it makes for an interesting experience, although it is quite expensive for the style and quality. Also, this is marketed as a chef’s rum, and as such it would make a fine post-meal appearance with fresh local seafood.
