My tasting notes
Nose: Light swirls of caramel and vanilla ice cream. With time deeper sugary notes mixed with tropical fruits. Pineapple on the grill. Light hints of cut grass and green herbs.
Taste: Medium to full body. Rather peppery and warm. Cut grass and dry hay. Tropical fruits and vanilla.
Finish: Medium long finish. Dry and more vegetal now. Light sweetness. Sweet licorice in the end.
Comment: I just love this little adventure of a rum.
