Intense with stacks of sweetshop flavours: fruit jellies and jelly beans, pear drops, rhubarb and custards, pineapple and cola cubes. Real fruit peeks in around the edges: stewed apple, crunchy pear, candied papaya and tinned pineapple.
Big and flavoursome, with salted lemons quickly followed by the sweets from the nose – a big mixed bag from the newsagents. Apple sauce and a bucket of spice join them: clove and hot cinnamon. Ferns and pine needles develop, sat with toffee apples in a bucket of sweet apple juice.
Banana and apple purée fades slowly leaving a mint and menthol coolness and spiced toffee.
A seriously flavoursome rum, with fruity esters balanced against darker spice and toffee notes.
