Early Bird Rum Tasting Reviews

The Real McCoy Limited Edition 14 Year Aged Rum
95 points
Amber color. Complex aromas and flavors of wet oak, Palo Santo, molasses cookie, tobacco, and leather with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry medium body and a warming, complex, long finish manifesting nuances of Champurrado, dried mango, creme brulee, hickory, and flamed orange finish. An elegantly dry rum with layers and layers of flavor; time has been very good to this spirit.
95 points $69.99
The Real McCoy 12 Year Aged Rum
94 points
Dark amber color. Aromas of hazelnut spread, cherry jam, pecan praline, and grilled peach and pineapple with a velvety, crisp, dryish medium body and a tingling, subtle, long espresso, smoked vanilla, brown sugar, leather, island spices, and toffee finish. A decadent, complex rum ideal for sipping.

Clear color. Aromas and flavors of coconut water, fondant, and tiramisu with a satiny, bright, fruity light body and a hot, fast finish. A super-solid, spicy white rum great for daiquiris and Cuba Libres.

The Real McCoy 5 Year Aged Dark Rum

Amber color. Aromas of artisan cola, bananas foster, nutmeg, and candied walnut with a round, bright, off-dry medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length caramel-coconut sundae, toasted marshmallow, and chocolate-cherry almond bark finish. A silky, caramelly rum that is delicious sipped neat and will make flavorful cocktails.
