Tortuga Spiced Rum

Review Date: October 14, 2009
Category Info: Rum :: Spiced
Distilled From: Molasses
Retail Price: $$ ($20-$30)
Bottle Size: 750 ml Bottle
Strength: 40%
Origin: British West Indies - Cayman Islands

Tasting Notes:

Amber/ caramel color.
Banana cream and molasses with spice notes of clove and vanilla.
These Tortuga rums are unsual in that the flavored varieties are still full 80 proof spirits. The body of this reflects that. These are far less viscous than most flavored rums. The palate of this rum is very dry. Lightly spicy with clove notes and a bit of vanilla. The finish is caramel and molasses.
