Amber color. Aromas and flavors of milk chocolate espresso bean, toffee with molasses soaked figs, hint of sarsaparilla, and rubber sap and leather boot with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, appealing, medium-length finish with touches of almond milk latte, dried tropical fruits, and sweet and peppery spices. A spicy and wonderfully balanced aged Rum with great versatility for rich cocktails, sipping, and cigar pairings.

Fresh cane juice rums are made with fresh sugar cane juice instead of molasses, but are not AOC or DO products, such as Martinique Rhum, Haitian Rhum or Cachaça. These are often of excellent quality with nutty, spicy flavors and a tangy finish and are perfect for cocktails or with the best examples, ideal as a sipping rum.
