Siesta Key Spiced Rum
Lovingly created out of a Sarasota, Florida distillery, Siesta Key Spiced Rum makes sure that quality remains the lone concern during the production process by making only small batches and focusing exclusively on rum. Their custom-designed copper still has been crafted to produce only the finest. Organic sugar cane combined with a unique yeast French West Indies helps create the molasses used here, with honey and spices included along the way. That's unlike other offerings, where corn syrup or other artificial sweetener are used liberally. A whiff of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger provide an enticing aroma, with hints of vanilla and cloves. This rum has been described by some knowledgeable samplers as liquid pumpkin pie; in short, a unique delight for the nose. Those vanilla hints are subtle, helping this brand set itself apart, while the finish brings just enough heat. This rum likely works best with fruit-based cocktails.
