“23rd sample of 24 days of rum offers a pot still Scottish spiced rum containing less then 5 g of sugar per litre. 👃 reminds me of a home-made hooch/booze or pálenka (in our country) distilled from various kinds of fruits but with spices included in this one. We can distinguish pear, plum, raisins it is very fruity, aromatic and rich in flavor. 👅 is really sweet, I don't believe the claim that there is less than 5 g of sugar per litre. Taste is definitely better for me. It is slightly spicy, fruity (all mentioned above) sweet but the hints of home made booze is still there :) Long finish. Definitely one of better spiced rums that I had a chance to try and this is coming from someone who is not a big fan of spiced rums.”
