Review and Tasting

Sampled on 26/12/2015

Appearance

Clear, deep tawny brown amber.

Aroma

Reminiscent of Southern Comfort, Lucozade and cola cubes with pungent dried fruit, apricot, cherry, crystallised orange peel, vanilla and light spice.

Taste

Intensely flavoured and slightly sweet with lime zest, dry oak and warming Christmassy spice. Notes of cherries, vanilla and lime cordial.

Aftertaste

Vanilla and crystallised fruit with more lime cordial and lingering Christmassy spiced oak.

Overall

With its sweet, fruity and spicy flavours, this slightly sweet “aged ten years” Filipino rum could have aptly been labelled ‘spiced rum’. It’s also strangely reminiscent of Southern Comfort with boiled sweet (hard candy) tropical fruit flavours.
