Nose: Spicy and intense with coffee beans and cocoa, maple spice and vanilla, a little potpourri and coffee beans.
Palate: Dark rich spices, apricot jam, golden syrup, toffee brittle, coffee and treacle.
Finish: Plum and raisin.
This rum is superb. Very complex and demands your attention like a noisy child dressed in a duck suit and quacking around in your mouth. One minute it tastes like maple syrup pancakes and ice cream and the next minute POW an uppercut from your grandmother holding a pot of cloves. I could drink this all day, in fact yesterday I did.
