Review and Tasting

Sampled on 31/10/2018

Appearance

Clear, deep mahogany amber.

Aroma

Pungent, dried fruit, cigar box, cherries, toffee, passion fruit, cinnamon and pimenta allspice.

Taste

Full-bodied. Bitter wood tannins, cinnamon and pimenta allspice balances rich dried fruit, baked apple, treacle and vanilla fudge.

Aftertaste

Long fruity and spicy finish with pleasing varnished dried fruit.

Overall

This huge rum is rich yet dry, with spice and wood tannins mellowed by rich dried fruit, treacle/molasses and vanilla fudge. A pleasing boat varnish-like note adds complexity.
