Launched in Autumn 2012, as the name suggests this is the first such edition from Rhumerie de Chamarel.

Clear, mid golden amber with slow falling tears.
Vanilla, slightly tart passion fruit, overripe banana and tarte tatin.
Wood tannins and spirit notes balance vanillins and fruit to produce a light-medium bodied complex agricol rum. Maturation period is perfect – just enough oak influence but not too much.
Long, lingering spicy oak and vanilla.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
