This full-bodied rum delivers an intriguing range of aromas, from intense vanillas to faint notes of sherry and raisins–all built upon a notable undercurrent of roasted cane sugars. Eighteen years of aging and expert blending come to life with the first taste, revealing a deep vanilla flavor, followed by dried fruits, nutmeg, cinnamon spices and a hint of oak. Immensely smooth all the way through, this rum unwinds with a gently wavering sensation of oak, sherry and raisin.
