Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/10/2018

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Cacao and coffee with brasil nuts, vanilla, faint smoked kipper and blackened fruitcake.

Taste

Medium to full-bodied. Lightly spiced, subtly smoked cacao with dry nuttiness, over-baked fruit cake, cigar leaf and oak tannins.

Aftertaste

More of that cacao and spice with monkey nuts and a Frazzles Crispy Bacon Snacks smoky note.

Overall

The label proclaims this rum as being “rich & smoky dark”. Rich refers to this rum’s generous flavour rather than suggesting it’s sweet. Indeed, as rums go, Edition B is on the dry side. Cacao, coffee beans, brasil nuts, vanilla, smoke and blackened fruit cake characterise this generous and singular rum from nose to finish.
