Takes some time for the alcohol vapour to burn off and for it to open up in the glass. Chocolate Caramels, Vanilla Ice Cream with Cinnamon. Crisp red apple. Black forest gateau.
The high alcohol content giving the mouth a coating of Fizzy sherbet and Pepsi Cola.
Long but dry and numbing finish. Tobacco and Cigars, dry apple cider.
I like my drinks at cask strength but 62% might be just a touch too high to enjoy straight out the barrel for this particular rum. Maybe just a tiny dash of water to open up the palate here. I will add to these notes once tried with water.
