This was the sixth rum that we had tasted on a cold day in January. “It was like a grown-up version of Jagermeister”, said one Panel member. “Yes, and I also get that fresh magic marker pen”, said another. The third Panel member highlighted the old woody notes, with liquorice, tobacco leaf and cedar wood. They all agreed that the taste was initially sweet and spicy but quickly evaporated like the angel share of rum from a barrel in Nicaragua. And once water was added, it reminded them of ‘orange marmalade, with a hint of buttered caramel and toffee’. A nice way to finish the first tasting session before lunch.
