From a packaging standpoint, Deadhead Rum is definitely something unique. The distillery's unique packaging draws influence from the shrunken heads of the northwestern Amazon headhunters and strikes a balance between morbid and interesting. The brand's first release was a standard aged rum, but the latest incarnation from Deadhead Rum is a dark chocolate-flavored spirit.

The Deadhead Run dark chocolate incarnation offers up exactly what the name promises, as the nose brings aromas of grain, a dusting of cocoa powder and a slight vegetal hint. The palate is semi-sweet with heavy chocolate overtones, alongside hints of vanilla, burnt caramel and slight notes of wine. On the finish, the dark chocolate Deadhead Rum showcases a sweetness as the bitter notes of the chocolate fade into something more candy-like. Bottled at 70 proof, Deadhead Rum's dark chocolate creation is truly something unique and unlike most flavored rums on the market.
