Amber color. Odd aromas and flavors of plastic, embers, butterscotch, and dried herbs with a lean, shrill, bone-dry light-to-medium body and a searing, breezy finish that shows notes of green apple and black olive. A mixing rum.

Fresh can juice rums are made with fresh sugar cane juice instead of molasses, but are not AOC or DO products such as Martinique Rhum, Haitian Rhum or Cachaça. These are often of excellent quality with nutty, spicy flavors and a tangy finish and are perfect for cocktails or with the best examples, ideal as a sipping rum.
