Review and Tasting


Sampled on 16/02/2023

Appearance:

Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma:

Honey, toffee, baked banana and spicy oak with desiccated coconut, pineapple and black tea.

Taste:

Spicy black pepper, ginger and oak tannins hit first followed by mellowing toffee, honey, baked banana and vanilla.

Aftertaste:

Breakfast tea-like oaky tannins, milk chocolate, black pepper spice and vanilla-infused banana bread.

Overall:

An assertive backbone of dry toasty oak tannins balances sweet honey, toffee and baked banana to present waves of flavour on the palate. A generously dry rum that's distinguished by those toasty oak tannins.
