Bright copper color. Rich caramelized roasted pecan, chocolate gelato, and spicy chutney aromas with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a vanilla, melon sorbet, praline, and mineral finish. A great cocktail rum.

Tight scents of tobacco leaf, bacon fat, walnut, lanolin, parchment and brown sugar. The palate entry is caramel sweet with touches of vanilla bean, and honey; the midpalate features pleasing tastes of nut paste, treacle, marzipan and sap. Concludes semisweet, with traces of cola nut, cotton candy and dark caramel.
