Color: Medium amber, chestnut honey color with an orange hue and quick, thin but impressively oily looking legs.
Nose: Rubber tubes, dark Muscovado sugar and ripe bananas. Sticky toffee pudding and burnt top rice pudding. With a few drops water: Dried apricots, dried figs and candied pecans. New car tires and maple pecan pie...
Palate: Toasted fennel seeds, butterscotch and burnt pineapple upside-down cake. I am sure it can handle a few drops of water just fine: Jamaican rum funk amplified now and even more cooked fruits on the plate: Black currants, raisins and Damson plums. Caramel latte, milk chocolate and condensed milk.
Finish: Long with coffee con leche, cinnamon and dark sugar.
Overall: Amazingly well executed blend... Good for sipping and good for all your cocktail needs you can think of. There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this rum. Well priced, high proof and damn tasty. As a fan of Jamaican and Guyanese rums this bottle checks off all the boxes for me. Seriously I couldn't find anything to complain.
