Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/10/2016


Clear, golden amber.


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


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


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


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