Producer's notes for reference

Roasted banana and pineapple lead. Gentle clove and nutmeg follow, along with a touch of expressed citrus peel and candied lemon zest. Barley sugar, crunchy caramel and spun sugar develop, along with rich butterscotch.

Intense fruit: pineapple, apple, pear, mango and papaya stewed down into a thick jam. Clove and cinnamon notes build, with buttery pastry and darker notes of liquorice. There's a gentle hint of coal smoke hiding at the bottom. FINISH Big spice and tarred oak. That fades to reveal butterscotch and mint.

A shy nose conceals an intensely fruity palate. If you get past the fruit, there's even more going on, with spice and some dark smokiness. A complex rum that requires more attention than the lower-strength version.
