Bronze color. Aromas and flavors of rising pastry dough, caramelized nuts, bourbon barrel, and rocky road ice cream with a lightly tannic, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a peppery, interesting, long finish that shows overtones of spiced toffee, black licorice, chai, and pepper. A clean, rich, well-aged overproof Rum for powerhouse punches and the like.
