I poored the glass about a half an hour ago, and let it open up while i did some research. I kept getting interupted by the scent of sweet wine. It took a while till I realised it was the rum. The port cask really made it’s Mark. As I Pick up the glass and take a deep whiff, the gentleness surprises me, the 55% ABV is completely abscent. Sweet tobacco, ripe plum and tea, with a gentle smokiness fills my lunges. I could do this all night🥰
After that nose the expectations are HIGH! The liquid fills my mouth and warms my whole body in an instant. The Rum actually feels warm as it hits my mouth😮 This has the body and warmth of a voluptuous carribean woman. You have no choise But to surrender to it’s caress. Tobacco with a hint of smoke and menthol comes to mind. Spices, Black pepper and licorice root. Lurks from the debths😋
As allways with a warm sensual woman. Dont expect it to be over quickly😉 The warmt lingers in the back of my throat. With the licorise root hanging on, my mind drifts to a cozy evening on the couch, under the blanket with a warm cup of licorice root tea😋
Wauw! This is probably One of the best blends i ever tasted! And the fact that retail Price is only 75€ warms my heart🥰 Great Rum is still available at decent prices. And this is just amazing!! This is an absolute recommendation to buy!!😃👍🏼🥃
