Thoughts: This a beast to drink straight, a few drops of water mellows it out and brings more cream and vanilla flavors out, while turning down the burn on the finish. That said, outstanding rum for the price and a versatile one at that. I found a breakdown of the rum blend at this site: http://cocktailwonk.com/2018/01/oftd-deconstructed.html

Score: 85 out of 100
