London Tasting Panel (LTP)
The nose is really smooth and sweet, like a candy shop, with hints of fresh fruits, some lemon and maybe a little creamy with a hint of caramel.
Taste is so much bigger than the nose leads us to believe a little oily with some green edges! Wow its a growing palate for sure some ripe fruits like pears and peach with kiwi and a growing spice.
A great after dinner Rum for sure, not one thing about this rum says its a safe easy going dram its a lot more complicated than that and thank goodness it is.
Great choice 10/10
