Review and Tasting

Clear, pale golden amber.
Spiced banana cake with grilled pineapple, pencil shavings, fruit salad chews, vanilla and cinnamon spice.
Dry. Light to medium-bodied. Cinnamon, white pepper spice and dry oaky notes with rich banana cake, dried fruit and tart zesty citrus.
Long finish. Fruity notes fade to lingering lightly bitter oak, white pepper and cinnamon spice.
This believably unadulterated rum is dry and spicy with white pepper and cinnamon spice sitting above tropical and dried fruit, particularly banana cake.
