A Jamaican blend that starts with a nose full of greed and flavors, combining tropical fruits, nuts, solvents, smoky and caramelized notes with a nice balance. Powerful in the mouth, the rum remains faithful to what is in the nose, with the same greediness. The alcohol is well integrated, even if the first sip is quite strong. The finish is long and wants to be warm and sweet, the apricot prolonging the pleasure. A very nice blend.

Interesting combination! However, it is not quite clear to me why one fabricates such a blend. At the beginning and in the middle part, the typical astringent Clarendon notes come out, in the finish rather the Hampden notes.

An excellent blend where greediness and power are mixed. It is magnificent.
