Appearance: Full orange, with ruby red reflections.
Nose: Big influence of the sugarcane, deep, dark, brooding, with a winey hint from the sherry and brandy casks.
Palate: Heavy notes of sugarcane, a very rich and estery rum. Intense sweetness, with dates, raisins, honey and chocolate, then becoming more aromatic: medicinal herbs, cinchona, bergamot, black tea and coffee.
Finish: More and more spicy, with cinnamon and pepper. The sweetness strikes a perfect balance with the oaky influence. Long, everlasting, chewy and thick.
Comment: A wonderful old Spanish-style rum, rich in sugar content but with a deep and refined influence from the casks. Ideal for connoisseurs of the sweet Latin style looking for complexity and spice too.Suggested match: Valrhona Jivara 40%, a rich milk chocolate with vanilla scent, well suited to the intense sweetness of the rum.
