The taste is of banana, nutmeg, brown sugar, light molasses, caramel, allspice, vanilla bean, pear, Szechuan pepper and coconut.

The nose has some light, but noticeable alcohol, with a touch of molasses, and hints of raspberry. The scent is somewhat jammy, with hints of mango.

If there’s anything Portlanders love, along with beer and spirits, it’s coffee. Capitalizing on that love affair, Deco have taken their Silver Rum and flavored it with coffee from local favorite Stumptown Coffee Roasters. The result is an interesting spirit with more presence than most flavored spirits, but with far less sweetness than most flavored liqueurs.

On the taste, there’s a more than a bit of a burn at the tip of the tongue and back of the palate, and then you can almost taste the flowers that the bees made the honey from. After that, it opens up and you a get a lot fruit from the figs and also what seems like a trace of citrus.

As an interesting aside, the rum begins with molasses from the last operating sugar mill in Texas. I assume that’s the Imperial Sugar Company in Sugar Land, Texas, which still refines sugar imported from Hawaii, Louisiana, and Puerto Rico.
