Clear, golden yellow.
Tell-tale paint-like nose of a Triny rum but in case the oil paint has been well diluted with sweet smelling emulsion, aromatic thyme, butterscotch and fermenting fruit.
Candied fruit, rubbery palate with burnt plastic and Caramac-like flavours and well-judged drying spicy oak and a hint of pine (strangely quite cognac-like).
Medium length, orange zest, varnish, plastic and spiced oak finish might sound bad but is actually quite appealing.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
