Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/07/2016

Appearance

Clear, deep burnished coppery amber.

Aroma

Dried pineapple, grilled peaches, overripe banana, Tizer and demerara sugar with clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice.

Taste

Slightly sweet. Grilled pineapple, flambéed peach, tangerine and scorched demerara sugar with clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Caramel, grilled pineapple and cinnamon with lingering zesty orange.

Overall

Perhaps best described as pineapple influenced rather than pineapple flavoured, this is indeed a fruity rum with notes of grilled pineapple, flambéed peach, tangerine and demerara sugar with clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice.
