After the initial soapy Fairy original washing up liquid start we get various fishy aromas of grilled mackerel, salmon sushi, tuna sashimi and dolphin (‘not a dolphin‘). Carrying on in the oriental theme, spring roll, sweet potato tempura but also spring onions, chives, Vegemite and Marmite XO. Ouch!!! Only for the brave to taste neat. Adding water, Chai spiced milk tea, rye bread with butter, spicy caraway seeds but also sweet, vinegary and salty like Rollmops. Much more approachable now on the palate, sweet dumplings and a thick crusted slightly burned blue cheese and onion chutney pizza covered with olives and anchovies. This most peculiar rum comes from the Caribbean island believed to be the home of the oldest rum distillery from 1703.
