Review and Tasting

Sampled on 10/10/2016

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

The pungent aroma of arrack is immediately apparent on the nose, which along with Jamaican pot still rum gives 5 Island a spicy fruity aroma reminiscent of freshly cut passion fruit.

Taste

Tropical fruit continues into the medium-bodied spicy palate with Matcha green tea, grassy, herbal and fresh parsley.

Aftertaste

Dry, grassy and white pepper lingering spicy finish.

Overall

The arrack in this rum makes it too pungent for lighter rum drinks such as the Daiquiri but is excellent in a rum punches - after all, punch bowls were originally made with arrack.
