    Picked this up on an offer at the local supermarket. Didn’t disappoint! Nose: strong apricots & hints of caramel. Taste: sun ripened oranges linger on, struggled to get passed the strong orange!!
    Finish: sweet candy sweets, quite short.

    The rum really sneaks in on the nose and snaps into the foreground in the taste. Orange, toffee and citrus finishing with a soft creamy mouthfeel. As to the price if purchased for under £30 absolutely worth the money.

      The body is medium + full and oily. Fruity (citrus and stone) and sweet with that spiced rum end taste.
    • Finish

      Sort but sweet.

    This is freshly opened.

    N: fresh oak, light tropical fruits, grist. But there's this underlying note that is funky. It's like the leftover stuff from rum production. Also, noses hot.
    P: way over-ripe oranges, clearly some rum influence but sort of like burnt sugar cane.
    F: longer than you would expect with a warming carmelized sugar
