Bars around the world now proudly display bottles of Man O'War rum after procuring via an online (Facebook) bartering process. Bottles have usually been transported by one of Ben's friends on their travels, this latest bottling came to us via that champion of all things Kiwi, Jacob Briars.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 01/04/2011
Clear, chestnut brown.
An explosive nose of graphite, maple syrup and spent shot gun cartridges but with espresso coffee and cacao aromas.
Dark molasses, stony, earthy palate with cacao, espresso coffee and bitter toffee flavours (more refined and less prickly than previous bottlings).
Mocha coffee, hot pepper, metallic, spicy, tingling, phosphorous finish. Sip, light touch paper, stand back and ponder the Kiwi mentality.
