Makers Taste --- Great Lakes Distillery

The Rum Runner heads north to Wisconsin for a look at a rum. Located in Milwaukee, GLD has tours, tastings and a variety of spirits to try.

This is well within a drive so hopefully we will get to taste this one, in person soon!
Roaring Dan’s Rum is distilled from fermented grade “A” sugar cane molasses. Before a second distillation, pure Wisconsin maple syrup is added. The rum is then aged in a combination of new charred American white oak barrels and used bourbon barrels. The hint of maple we add gives Roaring Dan’s Rum a buttery sweetness on palette entry followed by a dry finish. Try it straight up or in your favorite mixer. Be sure to check our cocktail database for some great rum cocktails.

Got to admit the addition of a hint of maple sounds intriguing. Anyone out there taste Roaring Dan's? As usual looking for feedback!
Until next time.... Lick Your Glass!!
