Kirk and Sweeney Burning Mast

This is a rum finished in red pepper barrels. Look for a topaz hue, a mild, peppery aroma and light-bodied palate that opens with cinnamon red-hots and peppery heat. The heat factor definitely ramps up with repeated sips, quickly escalating from gentle glow to persistent, mouth-numbing prickly heat. The final effect reads as savory jerk spices: cayenne, hot paprika, cumin. A bit of sweetness to offset the heat would have gone a long way. Kara Newman
