Review and Tasting


Sampled on 08/04/2013

Appearance:

Clear, dark coppery amber.

Aroma:

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

Taste:

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

Aftertaste:

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