Years ago, 7 or so, it was pretty good. Not an orange-y cordial, but a real rum. But, it went in a different direction. I still have 2 bottles of the original stock. I am curious to hear your take on it. It's around $20 a bottle in CA, now. Actually, one can make a pretty good drink with it. I like it in a Rum Manhattan. The bitters tones down the sweetness.
