Appearance: Intense gold.
Nose: The alcoholic strength is evident but not overwhelming. Strong notes of cinnamon, orange rind, camphor, nutmeg. The typical Jamaican aroma of esters and fermented fruit.
Palate: Definitely dry, with no evidence of sugary residue. Extremely peppery, rich with cinnamon, cloves, liquorice and medicinal herbs. Intense, raw, enveloping.
Finish: Very dry, with a long lingering taste of aromatic herbs and cooking spices, and a slightly vegetal and salty aftertaste.
Comment: A Jamaican rum in its most natural presentation: bottled at full proof, at the same strength it comes out from the barrels. For those looking for strong and raw experiences.Suggested match: Valrhona Caraibe 66%, a dark and intense but velvety chocolate from the Caribbean, the same area of origin of the rum.
