The bad boy of the spiced rum category draws on tattoo culture (look for the cute hula-girl tattoo label) and high alcohol content (north of 80 proof). Despite the sweet, almost root beer-like caramel fragrance, the mahogany liquid is brawny and dry. Look for bitter cocoa up front, cinnamon and allspice notes. A good foil for drinks with sweeter ingredients.
