Member Ratings and Notes
One of the better rum finishes I've had.  This is better than the BenRiach 15 sherry finish.  B/B+ 
N: Oak and lemon cake.
P: Light but mouth coating, the rum spice is the most predominant flavor.
F: More spice, a little hot. 
Spice, seasalt and light citrus in the nose and on the palate.  Very nice.  
Yum rum.  The dark rum adds a sweetness to the whiskey that makes for a deliciously different taste than most whiskies.  

A pleasant somewhat sweet, sugary nose, and the rum is clearly identifiable. An initial sugary velvet gives way to a warm, candied oak, which then leads to a reasonably long, mellow finish. I found this to be an extremely interesting, well-executed cask-finished scotch.

Spicy. Tobacco. Complex. 
I also really like this.  The rum adds some great leather and spicey wood flavors that are not in the regular BenRiach.  The sweet sharp fruitiness is softened a bit by the smokey tobacco notes from the dark rum spices.  Really nice and almost a B+.
