Description

The initial nose had plenty of solvent-like aromas such as nail polish remover and wood glue but as often happens over time, fruity, sweeter notes of pineapple and strawberries appeared. Astringent and fiery combining with a strong, salty liquorice finish made this a challenging proposition. Water to the rescue as well as time! Now we discovered cardamom, cloves, honey and hints of petrol (in a good way!) like one can encounter in fine aged Riesling wine. Now we imagined dipping salted dark chocolate cookies into a mug of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. After 11 years in an ex-bourbon barrel we transferred this rum into a new oak heavily charred barrel.
