Clear color. Grassy aromas and flavors of sugared dried pineapple, mint chutney, coriander seeds, and rendered fat with a satiny, lively, dryish light body and a peppery, complex, long finish with notes of allspice dram, banana peel, licorice candy, and spiced cake finish. Put this rich flavor bomb in tiki cocktails to add tremendous depth.

A silky, gold rum with a nicely balanced range of cane, still, and barrel flavors.

Brilliant amber color. Bright, woody, rubbery aromas of lacquered wood, dark roasted nuts and bananas, rubber leaf and sap, and toasted meringue with a supple, vibrant, off-dry medium body and a warming, complex, medium-long dried fruits and grass, pink pepper, mocha cream, and fuel-like minerality and copper ore finish. A dimensional dark rum with lots of fun agricole and potstill character.
