Default Ron Canita

I don't usually buy white rum, but I was intrigued by this one produced here in Puerto Rico. Ron Canita "Alambique" brand. Canita is the diminutive in Spanish for cane. It's also local slang for moonshine. Alambique refers to the old fashioned pot still. It's bottled at 86 proof. It looks to be produced by Trigo Corp distillers in Toa Baja, PR. I can find no info on it on the web outside of one reference on a forum and a listing or two of it as being produced in PR. It has a nice light straw color. A light fresh mown hay aroma which carries on to the palate and through to the finish. It has a very nice full rounded feel in the mouth. Much "bigger" than other white rums I've tasted produced here in PR. I have no idea if it is produced from cane juice or molasses. It sells for under $10 per 750ml here.
