Clear. Minerals, orange peel, and cane notes in the aroma. Smooth and subdued first on the palate, then opens slowly with more mineral notes, some caramel, slight sweetness, and allspice. A bit of acidity balances the sweetness, then a nice, balanced burn at the end. A heavy body for a vodka, medium body for a rum. This is technically a rum, and the flavors and aromas bear this out.
