Puerto Rican Rum Infused with Natural Mint
40 Proof / 20% alcohol
Suggested Retail Price: $12 to $15 range
Availability: United States offices opened in June 2009 with the purpose of increasing availability to all fifty states.
Aroma: Light mint. No burn. Like Rigley’s Spearmint Gum aroma-wise.
Tasted Neat: Sweet with rush of sour almost immediately. Sweet to sour as in a sweet tart kind of way. Made my mouth water. Mint flows through nicely. Warming at back of throat. Perhaps tartness is hint of lime. Comes across as soft yet tart apple.
Mouth Feel: Lower end of medium. Not too thick even with the sweetness. Not too thin either.
Possible Uses, Pairings and / or Cocktails: Could possibly top with plain club soda and add a hint of extra simple syrup to sweeten the deal. More mint is always good. Betting this would be great in lemonade with splash of 7-UP or Sprite.
It would be fascinating to see the infusion process of natural fruit and/or herbs since the mint works so well with this one.
