The raspberry aroma after the pour is true-to-the source, ripe and fresh; following aeration the aroma turns more preserves-like than fresh-picked fruit-like. Palate entry is sweet, yet tart and pleasantly fruity; by midpalate the flavor profile turns savory, fruity and decidedly sweet/tart. Concludes elegantly and ripe. Another how-to-lesson on rum flavoring by the wizards at Cruzan.

Clear and clean as a whistle; the raspberry aroma after the pour is true-to-the-source, ripe, and fresh — aeration gives the aroma the chance to turn more preserves-like than fresh-picked fruit-like; the palate entry is sweet, yet tart and pleasantly fruity — by the midpalate stage, the flavor profile turns savory, fruity, and decidedly sweet/tart; concludes elegantly and ripe; another how-to lesson on rum flavoring by the wizards at Cruzan.
