Tasting Notes

"On nosing, there is a symphony of oak aromas fighting for attention. There are tell-tale signs of Jamaican funk and fruity esters alongside the banana many associate with some Barbadian rums. There is also a bright spice note and a rich combination of chocolate and coffee. Beyond the aforementioned notes is a heady combination of spices including nutmeg and allspice. The rum enters with a large dose of oak and dry spice. The spices now translate into pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon. The oaky tannins coat the palate, and once accustomed to the rum, a tropical fruit basket jumps to the fore showing lemon, mango, papaya, and grapefruit. The dry finish ironically inspires further sipping, and as the last drops evaporate on the glass, one is left with the impression of a tropical fruitcake. Delightful."
