330 ml bottle from LCBO into a pint glass. ABV indicates 7.4% on my bottle of I&G Spiced Rum Finish.
Appearance - Golden orange with some brown hues thrown in. A nice rich looking color with minimal bubbles. One finger of head is poured even with a fairly aggressive pour. Head dissipates quickly.
Smell - Definitely the spiced rum comes through here. Otherwise similar to other Innis & Gunn offerings from the Oak aged barrels. Caramel, toffee and vanilla. Quite a bit going on here and smells are quite potent.
Taste - Similar to the s,ell, spiced rum, caramel and vanilla. Quite rich and sweet tasting. A hint of an earthy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Nice on the mouth, yet there is a certain thinness there that was unexpected.. Very low carbonation on the mouth as with the other offerings.
Overall - A nice change, but I feel the Original and Rum Cask are better options than the spiced rum cask. Would consider purchasing again, but not in large quantities.

This is the now-called "Rum Finish", looks a little different than the posted image but the same stuff for the most part as far as I can tell - though it looks more of a deep red and less of a copper.
Appearance: Dark, rich red-brown.
Nose: Red licorice
Taste: More red licorince, rum spices, sweet apple, vanilla. Powerful sweetness, almost sickly sweet but great flavours. Kind of hits you over the head with its flavour but a great accompaniment to rich foods.
Mouthfeel: Malty, quite average in carbonation and body.
