Review and Tasting
Sampled on 04/09/2017
Pungent, grassy, damp straw and estery aromas with white pepper, faint soot and cane juice/honey. A minerality reminiscent of pavements after rain.
Dry with spirituous white peppery spice, cut grass, dried grass and faint lemongrass. Subtle floral fruity notes emerge with water.
Delicate citrus emerges in the spirituous white pepper spiced grassy finish.
This unaged mono variety vintage bottling is one of the most distinctive unaged rums on the market – grassy flavours and white pepper spice predominate with subtle lemongrass and faint floral fruity notes.
