Clear, bright golden yellow with coppery glint.
Whiff of old tobacco on a spicy, buttery nose with slight dried tropical fruit aromas.
Has that Oil paint note I find a signature to Trinidadian rum but here masked with overripe banana and sweet orange caramel.
Slightly bitter, old tobacco returns in a slightly clumsy finish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
