(continued from page 4)
Gosling's Black Seal (Bermuda): A distinctive, coffee color, almost black, with strong aromas of cola and coffee. Deep flavors of cocoa bean, cola and a long finish of tropical fruits.
Havana Club Extra Anejo-7 Years (Cuba): An attractive, sweet nose with strong flavors of butterscotch and cola that finishes with ripe raisins. A taster's choice.
Jumby Bay (AntiguaBarbados): A light, delicate rum with hints of butter and vanilla, but a slightly hot, herbal finish.
Mount Gay (Barbados): Unusual, iridescent yellow color. Some sweet butter notes on the nose, but ends hot and thin on the palate.
Myers's Rum (Jamaica): A deep, reddish orange, with a overpowering smoky, tobacco nose. Strong notes of clove and a lean, dry finish.
Pusser's Rum (bottled in U.S., blend of rums from Guyana, Trinidad, British Virgin Islands): Pale yellow, with clean, Chardonnay-like aromas. Light and smooth with notes of melon, toast and a soft, sweet finish.
Ron Viejo de Caldas (Colombia): Aromas of fried bananas and licorice. Anise flavors with a burnt sugar finish. Unusual complexity for a three-year-old rum.
Pampero Aniversario (Venezuela): A beautiful amber-orange. It has a wonderful Cognac-like nose with oak and vanilla notes. Allspice and sweet, caramel flavors dominate the palate. A taster's choice.
Zacapa Centenario (Guatemala): A 25-year-old rum. Marked by strong aromas and flavors of oak aging--dry walnuts and orange peel. Flavor notes of spice and brown sugar with a long, sweet finish
