Cane Spirit Rothschild

Native to St. Kitts in the Caribbean, Cane Spirit Rothschild (which is commonly called CSR) is a fiery white rum that is often mixed with the local grapefruit soda, Ting.  It is distilled from cane juice and it resembles a vodka since it is distilled to such a high proof (from what I have read up to 190 proof).  This yields a very clean spirit with only faint flavors of the underlying fermented cane juice.

Though clean, it is unaged and drunk straight provides quite a kick.  I found this out soon after touching down in St. Kitt's when I asked the bartender for a CSR neat.  I wanted to see what it really tasted like.  The bartender said, "Are you sure?"  I was.  It wasn't awful but I would classify this as a mixing spirit.  There is an abundant amount of heat along with a little funk that you might find in moonshine.

So after that it was dozens of Ting with Sting's which is how CSR is commonly drunk.
