Appearance: Dark orange, almost like chestnut honey.
Nose: Sweet molasses, dark, musty, with a toasted note and a winey and slightly sour hint.
Palate: Its dark sweetness reminds of muscovado sugar. Chestnuts, dark chocolate, raisins, a trace of fermented fruit, but mainly intense sugared coffee.
Finish: Sweet, thick, with a slightly musty note. Winey influence from the sherry casks.
Comment: A robust and sweet rum, in which the sugar content is balanced by a dark and toasted character.Suggested match: Valrhona Abinao 85%, a powerful, dark and tannic chocolate from African plantations, ideal for matching sweet, powerful and complex rums.
