I need to pass on the word on Tortuga dark. I was brand loyal to a particular dark for so many years until I gave Tortuga a throw. It's deep, rich, with a diacetyl acetate butteryness and that distinctive, rummy, lingering molasses finish and aftertaste. Also, I noted a briney, iodinous, oceanic quality that was not unpleasant, nor distracting. I did find that Tortuga is being imported to the U.S., but as of yet, not the dark. When it comes in, be sure to give it a sip.
