Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/08/2011

Appearance

Clear, bright golden yellow.

Aroma

Oxidised/cooked pineapple, clove and black pepper, hot chilli spice nose with tropical fruit, cinnamon, tobacco and vanilla aromas. Nose tingling spirity hit.

Taste

Hydrated to approx. 45% for tasting yields an initial, almost buttery palate that quickly explodes with tobacco, tropical fruit, cinnamon and clove spice. Strong estery flavours and acetic/butyric acidity balances vanilla, Muscovado sugar and sweet fruit notes.

Aftertaste

Surprisingly creamy mouthfeel to the prolonged fire and spice finish with lasting tinned pineapple/tropical fruit. A cocktail (tiki) rather than a sipping rum.
