White vermouth, coconut, light vanilla, grassy hay and elegant spice.
Medium-bodied. Delicately but assertively spicy with dry oak tannins balanced by coconut, vanilla and sugar cane richness.
Vanilla, hay and light spice with some vermouth.
Perfectly balanced with a complex flavour and delicate spice, Alejandro has succeeded in his desire to create a blend that has the “mixability of a white rum and the drinkability of an aged rum”.
