Copper color. Confected aromas of black forest cake, orange marmalade, pecan frosting, chocolate biscuit, and stewed strawberry with a round, bright, fruity medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length chocolate genache, French cruller donut, poached apricots and mango, and grand Marnier finish. A rich, smooth rum with lots of sweet bakery notes; a decadent liquid hug.

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.
