Notes by Erik Voskamp the Dutch Rum Ambassador.
A little sweet nose with Tutti Frutti, caramel and some fresh tobacco in the distance.
The taste is a surprisingly light body with vanilla, caramel, cane sugar, butterscotch, tutti frutti and in the distance light tobacco.
The finish is dry with a short lasting aftertaste.
