Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Luscious, exotic, floral. Demerara sugar. Cloves. Old Jamaican rum. Verbena. Vanilla.
Palate: A sweet start followed by a salute of spices and exotic flavours. Coconut, cloves, cane sugar. Alcohol never bites, even without water.
Finish: Medium long, with lots of toffee and vanilla. Stem ginger.
Comment: A malt disguised in rum! Very surprising but not less exciting for that.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: HUGE oak impact. Starts like an ice cream float (on cherry cola), then becomes even sweeter: sponge cake, banana loaf. Add water and there's a lightly singed note from the wood.
Palate: Slow and sweet. Tropical fruits all mushed together with vanilla, but still has a balancing grip.
Finish: Long and rounded.
Comment: A wonderful rum...sorry, whisky! You can feel the calories piling on when you drink this.
