I never was a big rum fan until I happened to work a company well known for its rum, and now, well, it has found its way into the rotation. Sometime its out of necessity, sometime its free, sometimes it is because I work for a rum brand so everyone wants to share their favorite rum with me. Thanks to the fine people of Le Duke, they had some real deal legit rum on hand. It didn’t have a name per say. It had a label. It was Black Jamaican Rum from Jamaica. It lived up to its name. It was as dark as night. It was full of spice and a heavy caramel overtone. It was thick. It had a burn. It let you know you were alive. It was a great way to kick off the night!!
