A curiously named spiced rum which references events in the South Pacific during World War II. Islanders were living with little contact with the outside world when they saw a fabulous wealth of goods rain from the sky as the American Army parachuted in tons of supplies ahead of the arrival of its troops. The islanders had never seen such a bounty and even after the cessation of hostilities, continued to worship the “cargo cult” in the belief that the gods would again deliver the goods they’d so enjoyed during the war. While the glorious day that the mythical leader reappears bearing his unimaginable wealth is yet to arrive, the wait is over to experience something new – a unique small batch Spiced Rum from the South Pacific.
Polished brass in colour with 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.
