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.
