TASTING NOTES: Deadhead Dark Chocolate Rum with the essence of coffee and butterscotch on the nose, the echo of dark chocolate is restrained but solidly present in the bouquet. This flavored namesake flavor comes to the forefront on the first sip, layered with a back note of Bing cherry and cream soda. At 70 proof, this is a delectable spirit.
