Jamaica 2000-2014 – Isla del Ron

Rating: 9 out of 10 (Something special!)

Nose: more of classic demerara rum than a jamaican, very nice and complex. Sweet and sour. Fruits, both unripe and overripe. Vanilla. Also some fussel oils and some tannic woody notes. Cola-cubes. Also slightly gluey.
Mouth: sweet and full flavoured. Very ‘rummy’. I really hate this description, but I can’t find a better word for it. It’s something sweet and buteric. Quite woody, but in a nice way, with all the vanilla sweetness you associate with American oak bourbon casks.
Finish: Medium long, bittersweet.
