BARBADOS XO

BARBADOS XO

Anniversary Decanter - Rel. 2016

Barbados-XO-Ann-Decanter-NAT39-PRINCIPALE

Appearance: Acacia honey.

Nose: Herbal, fresh. Chamomile, a touch of mint, fragrantly honeyed. A delicate, smooth and aromatic nose.

Palate: The attack is initially slightly spicy, but soft and elegant. It evolves on a fine balance between honeyed sweetness, oaky influence, tea, mint, and a hint of medicinal herbs. Juicy but delicate, never overpowering. Fresh.

Finish: The tannins from the oak, the chamomile and the herbs grow in depth and intensity. The sweetness lingers in the background, leaving the palate clean.

Comment: Rich in taste, but gentle in body, a typically medium light Barbados rum that gained complexity and character from a longer than usual refinement in second fill Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks.
