I got this one from a friend because he wanted to tease me, but he failed because though I don't like Bacardi I was nicely surprised. The nose is light and a bit sweet. Vanilla is very obvious with oak without overpowering the caramel, coconut and honey. The palate is sweet fruity with cinnamon, peat and oak. A nice surprise and definitely one you can enjoy without mixing. The finish is medium long, warm and sweet.

Unspektakulär, aber trotzdem irgendwie erwachsen. Sehr neutraler Run mit leichter holziger Note
