Tasting Notes

Color: Dark auburn. Rich red tones.Ron Miel Rum Liqueur 025 - photo copyright Cheri Loughlin

Aroma: Black tea. Honey. Dark Molasses

Tasted Neat: Extremely sweet. Both rum and honey flavors come through. Also detecting hints of black tea. So much sweetness though. It is difficult to pick out distinct flavors other than syrupy sweetness.

Mouth Feel: Medium

Possible Uses, Pairings and / or Cocktails: This might be useful for sweetening tea. Something with a bitter edge would probably pair nicely with this since it is so overly sweetened.
