Lazy tongue Bacardi 151 if the dream pop of Silversun Pickups were looking for good taste: “I’ve been waiting for this moment.../ but it’s not quite right.../ so intimately rearranged.../ lost & loaded... / can focus clearly.../ fun to relate.../ the sun the sky”... the soil the ground / & the cacáo trees growing between

Flavor   46.1 / 50
drops the big chocolate bang right off, straight & true w/ a little dig to subterranean earth -> light red (mamey sapote) -> green tea flush -> aged rum w/ its source (molasses) smoothly onboard -> curls & loops off tobaccocoa
Quality   18.4 / 20
Not your brother’s Domincan chocolate but Mast Brothers’. The bros really roasted off the top notes (if there ever were any – in DR beans there usually are - that’s how complete it burned yet none of the traditional charred effects nor coffee grounds typical for the origin)... a friar (pun included): among the straightest Dominicans ever (plus it helps that they throw-down the butter which shows in both taste & texture) & the flipside to the Rogue. Relatively rapid length but with lingering after-tremors, & padded in the nicest vanilla distortion to caramelize rum tones.

These bros can rock.
