Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of pistachio gelato, strawberry mousse, toffee, nutmeg, and anisette cookie with a satiny, crisp, off-dry light-to-medium body and a warming, interesting, brisk finish with notes of vanilla-coke and cafe latte finish. A twisting and turning spiced rum for mixed drinks.

Spiced rum is a type of flavored rum that incorporates a variety of spice flavors. In the past, major industrial examples of spiced rum utilized a myriad of added flavor compounds, sugar and coloring. Today, many craft and high-quality examples are using more natural production methods, whole spice maceration, and a base of high-quality aged rum. Spices used may include ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, cardamom, orange peel, bay, vanilla and more. This style of rum is typically best in mixed drinks, as a flavorful shooter or used as a versatile cocktail ingredient.
