    The old 21YO Caribbean Rum Cask was great, this has absolutely nothing in common with that.

  2. peatbogger scored this whisky 74 points Specialist

    Nothing to write home about.

    From the over sized and over designed box to the over priced contents of the bottle, this is a designer whisky aimed at the luxury gift market.
    • Nose
      A punch bowl of sweet exotic fruits.

      Almost too much, on the verge of artificial.

      Pineapple, papaya, grapefruit.

      Bubble gum, a little vanilla.

      Have no idea what happened to the rum.
    • Taste
      Why the weird ABV of 43,2%?

      Still feels a bit thin.

      A pich of spice, but the fruit bowl of the nose is quite elusive.

      A little caramel and that's about it.

      Again, where is the rum casks?

      I find it rather flatt, dull and uninteresting.
    • Finish
      Short of medium.

      Some dry wood notes emerging, turning towards bitter tobacco leaves.
