Review #867 | Rum Review #40

Distiller: Privateer

Bottler: Privateer

Brand: Privateer


ABV: 57% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Very clearly their un-aged over proofed release. Rich, creamy, vanilla. Very corn forward on the nose, despite being none in their base. Some mild funky fruits, light banana, lemon, lime, maybe some orange. Very light compared to the robust creaminess and the vanilla icing presence.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, the heat is there. Cream, vanilla, sugar, icing, pepper, light orange peel. Shockingly palatable.

Finish: Medium length, pepper and vanilla ice cream. Light fruitiness, but mostly just sweet.

Overall: All things considered, this was a nice. I bet it will play nicely in a cocktail where funk and the tears of dying abused fruit arent always the best contenders on the flavor wheel.

Thanks for reading!
