Isla Del Ron – Guyana 1998

Rating: 8 out of 10

Nose: full on. Quite some wood. Lots of spices and some sappy notes. Also vanilla, mint. There’s little of the fruity estery notes you get with younger rum. Develops more depth over time.
Mouth: full on again! Very big and explosive, similar to the nose, with some waxy notes.
Finish: relatively short, and less drying than I expected.
