2013 vintage. 750ml bottle around fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out nearly black, dark brown highlights on the edges, a nice sized head off of the pour, decent head retention, khaki to light mocha in color. Decent lacing after a swirl of the glass, a bit of alcohol legs as well.

Initially I almost suspected infection, but as it warms this goes away. Boozey rum notes, some smoke behind the rum, campfire like, plays off one another nicely. A slightly musty barrel quality. Almost wanted a bit more complexity and intensity from the aroma.

Similar to the aroma, lots of rum qualities, some booze, but slightly more subdued than the aroma leads you to believe. Sweet, slightly spiced rum, some warming. The smoke adds a nice nuance to the rum, very slight bitter roast.

Bigger side of medium bodied. Almost expected slightly more body.

The more I drank this and it warmed and opened up, the more I enjoyed it.
