The pungent aroma of arrack is immediately apparent on the nose, which along with Jamaican pot still rum gives 5 Island a spicy fruity aroma reminiscent of freshly cut passion fruit.
Tropical fruit continues into the medium-bodied spicy palate with Matcha green tea, grassy, herbal and fresh parsley.
Dry, grassy and white pepper lingering spicy finish.
