Golden amber color. Fruity, nutty aromas and flavors of caramelized fruits and nuts, Jamaica drink, hearts of palm, and crystallized ginger with a glycerous, fruity sweet full body and a tingling, thought-provoking, long marshmallow, chocolate fudge ice cream, roasted nuts, and leather finish. A rich and satisfying sipper.

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.
