It’s quite neutral for a “black” rum. Aroma has some sweet melassis and a hint of vanilla. Taste is thin, light and a bit sweet. Burn is mild, aftertaste neutral but slightly bitter. It’s mass produced blended young rum with some brown sugar and spices added. There is still a certain amount of young distillate roughness. Barbuda is faint, cheap rum. Only way to use it is to mix it with some soft drink..
