In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant golden color.

Aromatics

The nose is far more subtle than expected as it offers scents of fresh fruit compote accented with vanilla bean, allspice, and baked apple.

Flavor

The palate is in full agreement with the nose delivering a fruit-driven core with flanking notes of pretty brown baking spices and sweet vanilla.

Intensity & Texture

Medium-bodied with waves of sweet fruit and spice notes while never becoming overly sweet.

Cool Factor

A

An adult and dare I say sophisticated take on Spiced Rum is always welcomed. The Humboldt Distillery Spiced Rum strikes all of the desired notes.

Value Grade

A

Mid-twenties for an organic, adult Spiced Rum works for us. We call it a value.

Analysis

The Humboldt Distillery is the creation of Abe Stevens, a fifth-generation Humboldt native. The small, craft distillery is located in Humboldt, CA among the mighty redwoods and fewer than a dozen miles from the Pacific Coast. Their Spiced Rum is made with organic sugarcane that was grown and milled in the USA. The spirit was double distilled once in a custom column still and then in a pot still. It is wonderfully balanced with bright spice notes and most importantly without the sweet, syrupy flavors found in most Spiced Rums.

How to Enjoy

Sip chilled over ice with a lime wedge or serve with ginger beer.
