Sutliff PS Barbados Plantation

Tin Notes:
In terms of quality Barbados Rums unquestionably rank among the world's best. This superb blend of Burley, Virginia, and Black Cavendish reflects the rum itself: sweet, smooth, and rich.

     Strength: Mild
        Flavor: Mild - Medium
          Taste: Mild
Room Note: Very Pleasant

The tin note was the fantastic aroma of rum. It reminded me of a wonderful dark spiced rum that a friend brought me back from Bermuda. The charring light released the flavor of the rum immediately. There was a bit of crackling although the tobacco seemed to be dry enough to smoke without any additional drying. On the true light the vanilla started to make it presence known. It kept building throughout the bowl but never overpowered the rum. The sweetness of  Virginia and the nuttiness of the Burley became evident around the halfway point. The tobacco burned well with minimal re-lights and no tongue bite. This is a good Aromatic that I would recommend to anyone.
