A coconut doesn’t grow on a pumpkin vine and The Bitter Truth Golden Falernum doesn’t forget it’s a rum liqueur. This Falernum is gold in color, taste and texture, but never one note, it is a calypso of flavour. On the nose are clean wet flip flops, seashells and ginger with just a hint of Christmas. The taste carnivals from fresh ginger to vanilla and almond, surfing towards an atomic fireball. All spice giving into a splash of lime and a delicate hint of Bajan sweet pepper sauce-like heat. With length that feels like a two week holiday, this little number can perk up any aged spirit and instantly turn it into a drink worthy of adornment with a plastic monkey and a paper umbrella.
