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.

Hits hard with a sharp clean aroma but finishes smooth. A fantastic mixer, one of the best with Coke, that carries its own through the entire drinking experience. I like this rum and believe it is a staple for the true rum fan...

The smell is dangerously smooth. The flavors are very subtle with a pleasant viscosity that feels syrupy without being too sweet

A bit strong straight up, but it mixed okay. I will give it some more time (and tastes) and adjust the rating as appropriate. A 5.5 on my scale..

49% ABV. I believe the bottle said the blend of Trini rums were aged 3โ€“5 years before bottling. Interesting nose. Some high notes. Mouth is a bit deeper. Starts light and cane-y, but dry. You can detect the oily, smoky Caroni. Surprisingly long finish.

Death & Company got something really good when this was developed for them. I love the proof, and I imagine this mixes like a charm. May need to make this my new "interesting" gold rum.

8-, 8

Smells like wet hay and tropical fruit skin, then tastes real hot and fruity with a little toffee. I was only sampling this at a bar, and sipping it straight was less than pleasant, but I could see this being lovely in cocktails or on the rocks!
If I get the chance to experiment further, I'll be sure to update!

The 49%abv makes this pretty bitey, but the flavor is still very good. It's a little dryer than most, but still has some sugar, honey, and vanilla to it. The spice is very interesting.

A bit spicy up front, get some barrel flavors, had it neat but I usually like ice but overall an excellent rum.

One of the drier rums available with some alcohol burn, some hot spice notes like pepper combined with vanilla, caramel, brown sugar and banana. This is a fine rum to drink neat but also does well in mixed drinks.
