Review and Tasting

Sampled on 10/07/2012

Appearance

Clear, dark mahogany with burnished copper highlights.

Aroma

Pungent, boat yard oak and varnish with treacle, freshly split vanilla pod, cinnamon, maple and zesty orange marmalade. Faint bitter dark chocolate.

Taste

Full bodied, dry oaky palate with treacle, orange marmalade and prune fruit.

Aftertaste

Dry, tannic, oaky resinous finish with lingering cinnamon spice. Beware not to over dilute, this very old rum benefits from strength to hold its structure.
