Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/06/2017
Clear, deep golden amber. Noticeably thick tears on glass.
Wood varnish, caramel, honey, tobacco leaf and cigar box with faint clove and white pepper spice.
Bitter and slightly astringent wood tannins cut through honeyed richness and raisin fruit with tobacco, bitter chocolate and wood varnish.
Dry spicy finish with more tannins and wood varnish.
This is a big rum, which (partly due to its limited availability) has an equally high price tag. Being generous, this is a perfect cigar rum, with the body and flavour to match a Cuban cigar with a ring gauge in the 50s. But as a sipping rum, it is perhaps overly aged, woody and tannic – hence our rating.
