Strength and power showcase this forceful, rich distillate’s intense flavors. Extended barrel aging have developed earthy flavors to complement the candied and dried fruit aromas. The rum has a long and direct length shooting down the palate and the alcohol, while powerful, gives drive to the dense flavors across the palate. The rum features deep concentration of complex flavors. All tannins are well integrated, giving a velvet texture, and youthful ‘spirited’ character has been matured into supple weighty character. It is a dry, richly textured, densely flavored, cask strength rum to be enjoyed as a sipping rum or in proper measure to add depth to any cocktail. Especially suited to the rum old fashioned and daiquiri.
