The Real McCoy 12 Year has caramel and toffee aromas that lead the nose, while the soft palate opens with a succulent brown-sugar flavor that’s cut with espresso and cocoa tones. It evens off to a dry leather exhale accented with clove and black pepper. This is a sipping rum to be enjoyed.
*94 points from Beverage Testing Institute: "Dark amber color. Aromas of hazelnut spread, cherry jam, pecan praline, and grilled peach and pineapple with a velvety, crisp, dryish medium body and a tingling, subtle, long espresso, smoked vanilla, brown sugar, leather, island spices, and toffee finish. A decadent, complex rum ideal for sipping. *Gold Medal, Exceptional* (03/2019)
