2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Pusser's Gunpowder Proof Rum (Barbados), 54.2% abv, $32.99

95
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

The amplified ABV on this ferocious rum creates intense flavors of baked pineapple, green banana, and ester-y umami. Although certainly geared to the cocktail market, the spicy finish is very enjoyable tempered with only a cube of ice.
