Copper color. Fruity aromas of Jamaican sweet plantains, coconut cooking oil, luxury cigarette shop, and chocolate fudge with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an interesting, medium-long caramelized mango, leather strap, cigarillo, and dried pineapple and vanilla finish. Delicious and elegant flavors and a lingering finish make this a natural choice for stirred rum cocktails.

Dark Rums are traditionally full-bodied, rich, caramel-dominated Rums. The best are produced mostly from pot stills and frequently aged in oak casks for extended periods. The richest of these Rums are consumed straight up.
