»The Bitter Truth – Pimento Dram« is based on selected pimento/allspice (also called jamaicapepper) and the finest Jamaican rum. English explorers coined the term allspice because the berry seemed to embody the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove all at once. On the Caribbean island of Jamaica, this distinctive aromatic liqueur has been produced for generations by macerating allspice in rum.

Tasting Notes:
Sweet, spicy and very intense. Clove initially presents itself in the foreground, fading into the pure flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper which linger on the tongue.
