“What a beguiling nose... very multi-faceted, intense and fruity.... Excellent!On the palate, the rum spreads creamy oily to all corners of the mouth and fills it with an interplay of woody, herbal, toasty, dried fruit and coffee! This fits and harmonizes !If the finish was a little longer... it would have been easily enough for an "excellent"! But it remains an exception!”
