Tasting Notes

Nose

Brown sugar syrup, liquorice pastilles, singed orange peel, treacle toffee and cinnamon biscuits. Fruity toffee with a coffee and charcoal background note.

Palate

Leafy - pine needles, crunchy brown autumn leaves and waxy green leaves. Gentle spice balances charcoal and tree bark, with forest floors and damp earth adding an almost cognac-like rancio note.

Finish

Dusty oak and autumn leaves sweeten to blackcurrants and spiced pastry.

Comment

Initially rich and dark, this rum has a lightness at its core that the spice and fruit don’t diminish.
