Details: Set down in cask to rest in November 2015, this rum blossomed and grew to be so much more than the sum of it's part. Rarely does a cask gain such complexity and elegance balancing warming alcohol that drives rich flavor across the palate in perfect harmony. This rare expression resolves with a finish that lingers and evolves on the back palate. This is a rum that stays with you: a perfume of spices, sandalwood, orange blossom, and smoke. The Angel’s Share on this cask was remarkable, and the rum left in cask was concentrated resulting in a round, rich, silky texture. $1 from each bottle is donated to support U.S. veterans.
