"The nose opens immediately with sweet acetone and a surprising apple twist, boiled sweets following. Herbs come through, but they don't covering the melon fruits that are flowing. The rum is oily, skating around the surface. On the palate, all hints of acetone flee, with fresh green herbs opening up gradually prickly the tongue with a slight eucalyptus tang. Fruits with a crush of sweet berries appear as well. The finish is soft, light, and surprisingly short, with cooling herbs and light fruit."
