An intriguing rum from a now closed distillery. Picture indicative only.
Tasting note: Very pale straw colour with flashes of gold. A three phase bouquet exudes a gentle nose prickle; first pass issuing notes of vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon, becoming riper and more estery with aeration as banana confectionary / fried banana in the second pass. After five minutes, the third phase becomes heavier offering a liquorice strap top note emerging over scents of golden syrup and molasses. Wonderful aromatic complexity. The entry is deceptively light, soft and sweet, then explodes with a bitter/sweet wave of spices that contribute to the slightly prickly and hot mouth feel, however the overall balance is remarkable at this high ABV. There is a flash of burnt sugar (or is it sulphur?) though it remains slight. Spices subside towards the finish which is momentarily sweet as flavours of brown sugar and fried banana return. Concludes exceptionally long and dry with the molasses persisting. Wow! A massive rum experience. 63.2%
