Tasting note: Perfect polished brass colour. Can’t fault the nose in its text-book aromas of crème brulee, caramelised fruits, vanilla bean and dried mango. This slips around the tongue while never being overly sweet, then grabs you with a length and style unexpected at the price. Elegant, medium bodied flavours strike a perfect sweet-dry balance. There’s light molasses, golden syrup and grilled pineapple notes as well as hints of dried mango through the finish. It’s a new benchmark in value for money rum, and better still, non chill filtered. 40% Alc./Vol.
