HUGE thanks to davey101 for this allusive motherfucker! Bottle 98 of 850:

Swampy tobacco brown with a creamy khaki cap that laces perfectly, with slow soft beading beneath.

The nose on this is surprisingly tame. Caramel and toffee with earthy oak notes... hardly any indication of rum, but it smells nice for what it is.

I was a bit hesitant to take my first sip, after reading such mixed reviews. I'm happy to report that if there are indeed bad bottles out there, this surely isn't one of them. Chewy chocolate and molasses, sweet heat from the rum contribution... loads of vanilla... red licorice... plum... leafy tobacco... wave after wave of flavors. You would never guess this is as dynamic as it is judging by the nose alone. Complex. Delicious.

Fuckin... wow. Thanks so much Dave!
