The Rum: Barbados 15 yo Marsala Cask for TasTToe

Origin: Barbados

Distilled n.i.

Bottled : 2014, by Plantation

 

Nose: starts a little vegetal (rue) and even a bit maritime. Vanilla and green bananas, well balanced with some soft peppery notes. The vegetal aroma’s disappear after a good 15 minutes to make room fors ome spices and wet wood. Along the distant horizon also some floral notes (white flowers)

 

Taste: sweet molasses, fruity and caramel. Dried fruits (figs). Acacia honey and herbal bonbons.

 

Finish: medium long with a slight drying edge. Perfect balance between sweet (acacia honey), herbal and fruity (raisins). It’s mainly in the finish that the Marsala kicks in.
