Review and Tasting
Sampled on 28/06/2018
Pungent, icing sugar, overripe banana, tinned pineapple and peach esters, clean hay and macadamia nuts. Light grassy aromas.
Light to medium bodied and dry with estery ethanol bite. Attractive fruity notes continue, as does a distinct icing sugar flavour (but not sweetness) with nutty tinned pineapple and grassy notes.
A continuation of the palate, but relatively subdued. Fades with grassy, pineapple, banana peachy fruit with lightly chocolaty vanilla.
A serious blended flavoursome white rum for the connoisseur - what are attractive fruity estery notes may be off-putting to some. This character makes William George a great punch rum.
