Intense, with sweet fruit and hints of hot rubber jumping out of the glass. After a few minutes, the rubbery notes fade to reveal stewed orchard fruit, a hint of varnish and creosote, and ripe bananas.
Rich and oily on the palate, with more banana to start. That becomes sweet and roasted before turning into toffee and caramel, with a hot and spicy accompaniment. More woody spice notes appear, with cinnamon and nutmeg joined by freshly stripped green twigs and autumn leaves. Behind all of that sits a layer of fresh, crunchy, sweet and sour apple.
Long and fruity, with cinnamon spice fading in and out, leaving a hint of banana and cream.
An intensely flavoured rum, with stacks of spicy character and a solidly fruity core.
