Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/04/2013


Clear, deep golden amber.


Bit hit of vanilla with cinnamon and notes of tinned strawberries, dried apricot and mandarin orange zest.


Slightly sweet with powerful vanilla, candied orange peel studied fruit cake and cinnamon spice.


Orange zest, dried fruit and cinnamon spice.


A very tasty crowd pleaser rather than an aficionado's rum.
