Castaway Spiced Rum (80-Proof, 40% ABV):
This rum has a very attractive color: dark and intriguing, yet clean and iridescent. The aroma is that of light alcohol, with traces of vanilla, molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
In the palate, the rum opens up not as sweet or complex as the aroma suggested, but with an enjoyable balance of spiced notes. The finish is dry and a bit short which, for this spiced rums, is actually a good thing, as it allows consumers to enjoy multiple servings without saturating their taste buds.
Enjoy this rum as you would any other spiced product: try it on ice, with your favorite mixer or even to spike your hot beverages.
This limited production rum is only available at Big Cedar Distilling’s Tasting Room.
