Maker: ???, Brazil (Constellation? Imported by McMaster Import Co., Chicago, Illinois)
Nose: Spirit, cane sugar, lemon peel, tangerine.
On the palate: Full-bodied and sweet. Burn, sugar cookies, hint of citrus.
Finish: White sugar, alcoholic burn.
Mixed: Performs well in most cocktails. Excels in mojitos, also works well in Coke and in Cuba Libres. Does surprisingly well in eggnog too, depite the citrus notes in the nose.
Parting words: This is a white rum allegedly in the style of cachaça, a kind of Brazilian rum made from cane juice. I’m not familiar enough with the style to judge how faithful it is to that beverage. However authentic it may or may not be, Olo is a good mixing rum. It exceeded my expectations in all categories. It’s very affordable and works great in drinks across the board but it lacks the complexity of a sipper. It’s supposedly aged in oak for a period of time but one would never know from the taste and aroma. All things considered, a good mixer at a good price. Olo Silver Rum is recommended.
