Just as we were settling into our Columbian explorations, one of our tasting companions added to the mix a recent purchase from his trip to The Seychelles with a rum from La Pleine St Andre.
Takamaka 8 year 40%
- Nose – Juicy oranges, a refreshing fruity floral citrus, sugary caramel chased by burnt sugar, vanilla essence, sour cherry
- Palate – Sugar, spice and all things nice! Very Christmasy, clove, cinnamon, oranges, oily mouth feel, nice oak
- Finish – A nice chocolate orange or chilli chocolate, with more clove spice
In our opinion, this was the most “whisky like” – in a good way.
Here are the Columbian rums we enjoyed that same evening:
