A beautiful soft and sweet aroma reminded us of cotton candy, butterscotch and coconut as well as a V.S.O.P. Rhum Agricole Vieux from Martinique using fresh sugar cane juice. Wonderfully silky and sweet on the palate neat; sugar cane juice, golden syrup, lightly candied pears and sugared almonds with an interesting exotic spice in the finish. A tiny drop of water and on the nose, we had plenty of exotic fruits next to a Masala chai, black tea with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs. To taste now - a sweet malted hot drink with a touch of cinnamon, butterscotch pancakes and a creamy tropical milkshake.
