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.
