Rich burnished amber copper color. Polished aromas of dried stone and tropical citrus fruits, melted toffee, vanilla, mossy river stone, and spice cake have a distinct high toned bourbon barrel quality and follow through on a smooth, satiny entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with superb depth and poise. Finishes with a long, evolving cascade of tobacco, leather, cocoa, cedar, nut, and earth nuances. An elegant, seamless aged rum for contemplative sipping, or top shelf cocktails.
