Appearance: Bright orange.
Nose: Like the 10yo but sweeter and more intense: in addition to the hay and herbs, a note of vanilla can be felt. The refreshing character is akin to milk&mint ice cream.
Palate: It tastes sweeter too, with aniseed and orange blossom notes, while retaining the minty and herbal freshness so typical of Barbados rum.
Finish: Sweetness takes a back place, and like in the younger bottling the dominating note is the aromatic freshness of mint.
Comment: Richer, sweeter, thicker, more complex than its younger brother, but the character is similar. Presented in a special decanter encased in a luxury book-shaped gift box.Suggested Match:Valrhona Alpaco 66%, a dark but delicate and flowery chocolate from Ecuador, perfect for the freshness and light character of Barbados rum
