Review and Tasting
Sampled on 21/10/2012
Clear, deep amber with burnished copper highlights.
Cinnamon, nutmeg and light black pepper spice with Blackened fruit cake, old leather, tobacco ash and pecan pie. Very faint hairspray-like note.
Sweet, fruity and spice with burnt fruitcake, overripe banana, vanilla, delicate cinnamon and clove spice. Tastes like there’s plenty of added burnt sugar to this medium bodied sipping rum.
Lingering stewed fruits, cinnamon and clove spice.
