Review and Tasting


Sampled on 23/10/2016

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Vanilla, walnuts, wood varnish, tropical fruity esters, toasty cedarwood, toffee popcorn and nutmeg.

Taste:

Dry, woody and spicy with rich vanilla, walnut, toffee popcorn and faint orange oil.

Aftertaste:

Cinnamon, black pepper and nutmeg spice subsides to reveal long lingering dry nutty vanilla and faint varnish.

Overall:

Dry and woody, yet rich with enlivening spice. This is a true, honest and characterful rum for real rum drinkers.
