La Caña Grande Gold Rum

La Caña Grande Gold Rum

Glass

Supposedly distilled in the Caribbean Rum, Barbados. Appears to be a Total Wines house brand; can’t find it sold anywhere else. 80 Proof

Nose. They say “Mild aromas of caramel cream.” I detect ethanol.

Palette – well, better than the disappointing nose. The body is thin, watery, a bit of meaningful authentic rum taste for sure, a dash of pepper, in a slight sweetness. No bitter aftertaste. I could see someone purchasing this for use as a cheap mixer. But nothing special worth drinking straight. Tasted like it could rum flavored vodka. Just meh.
