Review and Tasting


Sampled on 25/04/2016

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Fresh passion fruit, cherries, toasted almond, Bakewell tart, caramel and muscovado sugar with very faint empty plastic food box.

Taste:

Cedar, spice, passion fruit, dried apricot and zesty ruby grapefruit. More subtle hints of char-grilled pineapple, vanilla and tar.

Aftertaste:

Slightly bitter with citrus, tar, passion fruit and vanilla.

Overall:

Medium-bodied, soft and rich. April 2016 saw the introduction of a new label and with it a much improved version of this rum, particularly on the nose with fresh passion fruit, cherries, toasted almond, Bakewell tart, caramel and muscovado sugar.
