Medium gold color. Aromas and flavors of vanilla, salted caramel, cinnamon, and sugar cookie with a round, off-dry medium body and a medium finish that shows notes of vanilla, snickerdoodle, ginger, and caramel corn. A solid example of a spiced Rum lead by a dominant vanilla note.

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.
