Rum finish – 47.5%
My Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Raisins, honey, vanilla, hints of butterscotch and cinnamon.
Palate: Raisins, honey, toasted hazelnuts, vanilla, cinnamon, hints of ginger and pepper.
Finish: Rather long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: This really needs some water to fully open up. Then it turns from a rather generic dram into a pleasant experience.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
