Named for Melanesian beliefs held on remote islands that John Frum, probably a corruption of "John from..." (American serviceman having visited during the second World War bringing with them goods such as cigarettes, tinned food and some basic medicines), will one day return to bring prosperity once again. This Oceanian spiced rum is made with rums from Papua New Guinea and Fiji that are blended and spiced in Australia.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Winter spices and fruit cake, citrus, ginger and a little cocoa.The rum sources sugarcane from the Ramu River Valley in Papua New Guinea as well as Fiji.
Tasting note: Polished brass / brilliant clarity. Enticing and well defined aromas of vanilla custard, ginger bread and later hints of clove and baklava; contrasts on the palate which is unexpectedly dry, light to medium bodied, featuring cinnamon, ginger and light vanilla ice cream; builds towards the finish where the grassy rum-base peaks through. Fades baklava-like yet dry with a spicy warmth carrying the aftertaste. A versatile and tasty alternative to saccharine spiced styles. 38.5% Alc./Vol.
