Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/04/2013


Clear, dark coppery amber.


Sherry is very evident with dark cacao, dried fruit, toffee-apple-like, almost calvados aromas along with Brugal’s signature mocha coffee.


Full-bodied with sweet vanilla, toffee and liquorice balanced by dry cinnamon spiced oak.


Fruity toffee notes continue into the finish with drier oaky tannins.
