Rum - Lemon Hart Navy Demerara

Decided to make a foray into the spiced rum category with my latest bottled adventure by purchasing a 750ml bottle of Lemon Hart Navy rum.

"Rich, full-bodied, velvety smooth taste built on a firm Demerara dark rum foundation. Complex flavours of sweet dried fruits and island spices releasing a profile of freshly ground nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, butterscotch and ginger all resting on a warm vanilla swirl."

How could one resist such a description?

The added bonus was it was on sale this week at $26.99 (CDN) at the NSLC and Arctic Wolf had reviewed it quite highly with a sipping potential.

Upon opening and in the glass the rum was a brilliant copper hue possessing a very enticing scent of baking spices and toffee with an underlying sweetness promising a dessert like quality. A rum candy apple on a stick kind of appeal.
