Clear, deep mahogany with bronze glints.
Vanilla fudge, orange zest, dried apricot, almond, vanilla, cedarwood and caramelised fruit. Faint herbal and spice adds interest.
Drier than you may associate with Zacapa but with faint honeyed richness, vanilla and sweet amaretto-like toasted almonds balancing bitter espresso coffee, dark chocolate and dry oak. Subtle herbal notes add complexity while cinnamon, nutmeg and chili spice enlivens this rum.
Vanilla, mocha coffee and dark chocolate with very mild chili and cinnamon spice.
Vanilla, amaretto and honeyed richness are harmoniously balanced by espresso coffee, bitter chocolate, dry oak, with subtle enlivening spice and faint herbal complexity.
