Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: big, dark and thick; ground espresso, vanilla bean, licorice root; earthy with dunnage notes, wet leaf litter and cinnamon sticks; Eatmore candy bar.
Palate: round, rich, layered and leathery; very earthy and spicy; licorice root and salted Dutch licorice; tarry, Cuban cigars, a touch of burnt rubber; much nuttier than expected: walnuts and pecans.
Finish: tarry and leathery, nutty; spicy, black licorice, caramel and fruits.
Comment: this is a big rich rum, lots of layers, not as candied or sweet as the El Dorado 25 Year; quite a contrast.
