Dry, long finish. Stunning. Lots of tannins and dry wood. This is absolutely fantastic. Honest rum produced in the right way by a very passionate Master Blender, Roberto Serralles. I had a lovely chat at Rumfest… This is really great rum.
Also had a sneak preview and tasting of their new 2007 single barrel coming in January 2017.
Superb flavours. Hints of vanilla, a little sweeter than the 2005, very smooth and easy to drink. This rum all comes from a column still but they make the cut at just the right level to include a multitude of flavours.

A lover of rums, especially British-style from countries such as Jamaica and Barbados.
Rum ambassador. Reviews. Rum opinions. Rum advice. Rum news. Rum chat. Rum discussion.
My first rum was Appleton and that is generally the benchmark I use for comparing rums along with Foursquare. My collection now has (in 2022) over 600 different rums and that number is continually growing.
I am an advocate of the Gargano rum re-categorisation.
As well as rum, I am a big Liverpool fan (and season ticket holder) and love Pet Shop Boys (hence the blog name) as well as having a cute cocker spaniel.
I have a Level 1 WSET qualification in Spirits, Level 2 with Distinction and a level 1 WSET wine qualification.
