New Grove Old Tradition 8 yo
The Rum: New Grove Old Tradition 8 yo
Distilled : not indicated
Nose: Starts soft and a bit vegetal, with some soury aromas too. Needs some time to get more pleasant and rounder. Brown sugar and grapefruit now. Also some exotic fruits: mango! A rather strange nose that goes in all directions without being very consistent. But still pleasant, no offnotes.
Taste: starts rather bitter, with nice wood. Tonic. After a good 10 minutes more fruity and floral notes. Sweets and raspberry. Mango and passion fruit
Finish: medium long, with again nice wood, ending with some violets.
Our score : not bad, but definitely not my favourite New Grove. ***
