Nose: Heavy, brown sugar sweetness with molasses in there too. Lots of burnt caramel and a hint of white pepper.
Palate: Smooth and soft. There is pepper and spice here but it's nicely ensconced in the flowing toffee and caramel.
Finish: Vanilla and cloves floating over the caramel with a pleasant oaky dry note.
Overall: A beautiful sipping rum, soft, rounded and wonderfully easy to drink.
