Nico's tasting note
The first nose is very light, with floral and slightly fruity notes. The wood is also light, covered with a caramel varnish. Some spices come to perfume this woody, vanilla in the lead. It is soft but not too round, one does not perceive too much sweetness.
Aeration exposes a rather dry and strongly toasted woodiness. It has a straw, wood fire and almost earthy quality. Resting brings back sweetness, vanilla and caramel, but the profile remains very light.
The palate is very light and quite round. The rum is fluid and vanilla-like, with a slight touch of wood and caramel.
The finish comes back on slightly spicy alcoholic notes.
"The few years spent in cask bring a little wood and vanilla to your classic Bacardi..."
