Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/08/2023


Crystal clear.


Clean, subdued with faint cinnamon, cracked black pepper, white chocolate and old leather.


Clean, light-bodied. Cracked black pepper with delicate notes of pineapple and passion fruit. Faint burnt sugar/molasses, toffee, cinnamon and mace.


Long, dry, cracked black pepper with faint pineapple and fudge.


A superbly clean light white rum that's perfectly suited as a base for cocktails such as a Daiquiri in which subtle caramelised sugar notes are amplified.
