A big confectionery medley consisting of tiramisu, Boston creme pie, and cherry cordials bursts on the nose. Am I in a bakery? There's sweet tobacco, not unlike some Navy style cavendish, Muscovado sugar, and sweet oak coming in as well, but this rum is all about the desserts. The palate adds vanilla, red berries, orange, pancake batter, and maple syrup. There's even some Neapolitan ice cream--all scrambled together. It rounds out with dark caramel in the finish along with chocolate milk and the most enormous fudge note imaginable (seriously, it's the exact note as chocolate pudding Jelly Bellies). Better yet, jostling the spirit in your mouth evinces flavors even more bountiful! All that flavor...and it's almost like they were asleep, needing someone to come and stir them from their slumber. Absolutely sublime!
