I love the eye-catching packaging and the great attention to detail on the box and label. A very pronounced nose of sweet spice and baking spice, vanilla, dried tea, cinnamon, ginger, clove. Very warmand balanced palate with just the right amount of sweetness and a nice roar of alcohol on the finish. Themouthfeel is very rich, buttery, and creamy; a lovely texture throughout with lots of spiced fruit. Lovely on its own or would be amazing as a base for a cocktail.” HIGHLY COMMENDED RosemullionDistillery Ltd, Rosemullion SpicedRum “A very close runner up, Rosemullionmakes VERY good rum in attractive packaging. This rum is perfumedwith baking spices, ginger, vanilla from the oak. The palate is jumpingwith cinnamon, clove, and treacle pudding sweetness. The spice and sweetness are perfectly balanced against the alcohol and they provide a depth and richness to themouthfeel that is very complete.” HIGHLY COMMENDED Drapers England, Smoked oak andVanilla “I love the fact that this ismade fromdouble distilled molasses. The nose is full of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmegwith lots of textbook vanilla and oaky smoke, the mouthfeel is creamy, and the alcohol is well incorporated and balances out well, nothing is too harsh. There’s loads of walnut, dark chocolate and baking spices on the palate. A perfect sipping rum.” 59
