Very sweet and winning nose, vanilla, white sugar, slightly sour and hints of almond, wooden bitterness and coffee beans. However, no complexity with a short finish.
Ok, maybe with some hints if pineapple and other tropical smells. Taste is just ok, maybe goes well for cocktails.
It was not my type of rum. But maybe for other it can be.....
I think they were just playing around with this one or ran too large of a batch and went straight to bottling.
Aged for up to 6 years in American white oak and ex bourbon casks. Gravity fed charcoal filtration to remove the colour. Aromas of fresh coconut a little earthy. Taste very smooth and creamy with a hint of coconut water. Bottled at 47% abs am impressed.
N- Shy and almost odorless at the beginning. Touch of nuttiness, fresh almond, walnut and kennels. Layer of rebel ethanol heat and whiff of nail polish remover with prickly wood restrain the rather fine aroma of cedar wood and scents of light cigar to come thru. (17/25)
P- Sweet cane, moist toffee cake with tart berries. Minimum oak influence making it taste still quite raw, but well mellow and harmless after long aging and the multiple filtration. May be too raw and insignificant on flavours but do like the firm body that comes with it. (18/25)
F- Short and clean, better deliver on dried white fruits sweetness, grassy fragrant with spirit heats linger. (16/25)
Balanced:- Pale but still quite rich and tasty with good body, only to be pull off by the scents of ethanol. (17/25)
Weighted Rate:- 68pt

Not being a white rum drinker, I was surprised at the richness of taste, approaching ambassador's better dark rums. Not for sipping, but quite nice in for instance a mojito.
