Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Simon Difford (CLASS Magazine)

Bright bronze in colour. Aromas of honey coated warmed pecan nuts, pancakes and maple syrup, rum fudge, baked Alaska pudding and desiccated coconut. The medium-bodied palate has wood varnish, dried coconut, fudge, mocha coffee, honey and maple syrup, balanced by a sherried oaky garnish. Finishes bitter chocolate, honey, zesty orange marmalade vanilla, coffee beans.

Score: 4.5/5 (Highly Recommended)

Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose:  Full and intense:  Immediately obvious that this is quite serious stuff.  Big, creamy oak vanilla, some toasty notes, honeycomb, raisins, gingersnaps and dry wood.
Palate:  Big hit of varnished oak, like church pews.  Then aged orange liqueur, treacle tart, cheesecake base, hints of tinned mango, pecan pie, dark chocolate shavings and milky coffee.

Finish:  Very, very long, with the oak persisting amid pecan pie, vanilla ice cream, candied orange peel, chocolate liqueur, mocha and raisins.

Comment:  Pretty epic stuff.  The sheer density of fruit and spices just holds out against the epic oak.

Very pleasant

Just another fantastic rum from Guyana, so smooth with a taste all of its own. Tastes of fruit but with a small hint of burnt sugar, but only a small one. Great with ice and coke or just on its own, try and see.
