    Extremely dominated by the rum finish, but then old notes of oak and in the whole with a metallic undertone; Great age, solid stuff!

    It’s a good beverage but to me it’s more a rum than a whisky and I happen to be a whisky lover and not really a rum lover. Hence my lower rating. I would never buy a bottle of this.

    The best rum I've ever tasted. Oh, wait...

    Makes me wonder what this one would have tasted like without the finish.
    • Nose
      The rum has had a huge impact. Raisins like in malaga ice cream. Some baked apple and banana as well.
    • Taste
      Rum raisins everywhere. Baked apple. Rather peppery as well. With water that diminishes, and then there's some caramel as well.
    • Finish
      Rum raisin, baked apple and a little cocoa.
