Pirate’s Grog (75-Proof)
This rum features a citrine color with reddish highlights. The aroma is robust and assertive, a combination of slow-fermented, high-congener rum with notes of toasted nuts, preserved fruits and a touch of spices.
The body is lighter than the aroma suggested and less complex too. The rum opens up smoothly in the palate, sugary sweet at first, then dry tannins come forth and finally a touch of nutmeg reaches the back of the throat.
The finish is clean and lasts a few seconds. Naval rum aficionados will want to enjoy this rum neat, while those not accustomed to the rich aroma will benefit from the addition of ice.
