Appearance: Warm amber.
Nose: Black tea, aromatic herbs, mint, ripe fruits, and an evident winey note.
Palate: Medium/light bodied, smooth and easy but not simple at all. Complex equilibrium of tea and orange blossoms, with a mint-like freshness and a moderate amount of raisiny sweetness from the finish in Pedro Ximenez casks, all backed by a spicy and tannic hint.
Finish: Clean, fragrant, slightly growing on the spicy and winey notes.
Comment: A fresh, light rum, of great complexity and refinement, for connoisseurs looking for nuances and finesse.Suggested match: Valrhona Alpaco 66%, a dark but delicate and flowery chocolate from Ecuador, perfect for the freshness and light character of Barbados rum.
