Fresh zingy coconut and tobacco, with honey and oak on the finish. A great favourite.
A 2007-vintage rum from Trinidad Distillers Ltd, bottled by Mezan at 10 years old in 2017. This is a light rum, distilled in a multi-column still, before ageing in oak. It was finished in the UK in casks that previously held old Trinidad rums, giving it an extra layer of spice and depth. Independently bottled rum isn’t a regular sight on these shores, so it’s always a treat when some of it finds its way here.
Tasting notes Nose: Fresh zingy coconut and tobacco leaf notes with some toasted oak and citrus undertones. Palate: On the palate, notes of lemongrass, capsicum and fresh black pepper. Finish: These roll into a light spicy flavour with honey and oak on the finish.
