“This is a rum that will separate waters as an either you like it or not. Right out of the bottle it can be pungent to some, but after resting for a while it becomes more gentle and light. Fruity with medicinal notes are there from nose to finish. There is also oak and spice in the mix. Price to quality can be discussed all the way to the bank :-)”
