Clear color. Herbal aromas and flavors of ginger beer, thai basil, honeyed herb-mint muffin, and birch bark with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length finish with accents of ginger simple syrup, pink peppercorn, and ginger ale wax candy. A curious herbal ginger Rum for creative cocktail play.

Flavored Rums are white Rums with added flavors, sugar and coloring. They are generally tropical fruit flavors, but also come in coffee, herb or spiced flavors as well. They are designed primarily for mixing in cocktails.
