Nose: Toffee, cinnamon, cloves and pepper spice on the nose with thick caramel notes.
Palate: Muscovado sugar, soft toffee and just a hint of the spice detected on the nose. This is very smooth, belying its hefty abv.
Finish: Surprisingly short but thick and syrupy toffee notes abound.
Overall: A rich, dark rum with a high abv that retains its smoothness. Would work well in a dark and stormy, despite the fact Wood's is distilled in Guyana, and not Bermuda.
