The Project #173 range brings together the tastiness of rum and the tastiness of... Well, all sorts of tastiness! Specifically for this expression, the quality core of rum has teamed up with black cherry to create a full-flavoured spirit bursting with tangy, vibrant fruit notes. It's naturally flavoured to bring across authentic cherry elements, so expect a drink that will most certainly do very well with cola, as well as being more than suitable for sipping over ice or in a cocktail. Plus, the bottle itself is rather neat too, featuring a flake of 23 karat gold leaf!
Nose: Blackcurrant, cough drops, a little pinch of cinnamon, marzipan, mango, and just a waft of spring blossom.
Palate: Cherry Bakewells, brown sugar, more festive spices, a smidge of vanilla pod earthiness building, amaretti biscuits.
Finish: Softly tannic, with ripe cherry and spiced fruit compote notes.
Overall: Cherry notes galore, with a backbone of rum rounding everything out.
