Review and Tasting


Sampled on 03/04/2022

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Reminiscent of Tizer with cinnamon spice, papaya, vanilla, Swan Vesta matchbox striking strip, crème brûlée, ginger and baking spices.

Taste:

Papaya fruit, dried tropical fruit, vanilla, stewed tea-like oak tannins, crème brûlée and baking spices.

Aftertaste:

Dried papaya, cinnamon, black pepper, vanilla, and coal tar.

Overall:

Pleasantly drier than many spiced rums with papaya being the main flavour that sets it apart.
