Dark copper color. Aromas of molasses covered raisins, burnt sugar, dark roasted nuts, and coffee with a supple, lively, fruity medium-full body and a hot, captivating, long mocha gelato, white pepper, creme brulee, and fuel-like minerals finish. A rock solid overproof rum with lots of caramel character for punches.
