Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/03/2017

Appearance

(pre-launch tasting sample) Clear but not bright, deep golden amber with bronze glints.

Aroma

Pungent. Newly sawn toasty oak, golden syrup, vanilla, rolling tobacco, dark chocolate and mocha coffee with cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest.

Taste

Dry oak, brazil nut, ginger spice, honey, orange zest, dark chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg spice.

Aftertaste

A dry oaky finish with bitter chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest – softened slightly by brown sugar and butterscotch.

Overall

A pungent, robust, bone dry rum with bitter oak, Christmassy spice and zesty orange. Not a rum for those who like their rums on the sweet side.
