Tasting Note: English Harbour Five year Rum's polished copper hue prepares the drinker for the initial impression of cherry, oak and a wisp of smoke. The first sip of ripe apple, coconut and hints of cinnamon fill the palate. Then the slightly sweet coconut, spice and smoke finish complements the body of the mature spirit. Mixology possibilities are endless. This delightful rum can be consumed straight, on the rocks, with water, in making rum espresso martinis or with any of the world's popular mixers.
