Alcohol: 37.5%
Golden amber color. Yeasty, odd aromas and flavors of yeasty soda bread, waxy caramel candy wrapper, overripe cherries, and banana and coconut with a glycerous, soft, fruity medium body and a hot, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of pancakes with syrup on a pewter plate, coffee milkshake, pepper, and lit scented candle finish. A young and feisty rum for punches and the like.

Dark Rums are traditionally full-bodied, rich, caramel-dominated Rums. The best are produced mostly from pot stills and frequently aged in oak casks for extended periods. The richest of these Rums are consumed straight up.
