Notes by Erik Voskamp the Dutch Rum Ambassador.
Beautiful amber color with a nice reddish shining. The nose is complex, light, sweet but also spicy and very pleasant, The taste is surprisingly soft and light with butterscotch, freshly roasted nuts, slightly nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper grains.
