Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Chestnut brown/mahogany color. Nose is rich, intensely nutty (walnut butter), creamy, buttery, oily, slightly spiced (black pepper), tobacco-like. Flavor features more of the tobacco and walnut than anything else except for toasted marshmallow and oaky vanilla. Complex, concentrated aftertaste closes the circle on this jammy, profound rum.
