This tawny rum offers a mellow brown sugar aroma. The exceedingly smooth palate opens with plenty of creamy vanilla, plus hints of toasted marshmallow and vanilla wafers, winding into a long finish tinged with espresso and allspice. Aged for a minimum of five years in ex-Bourbon casks in Barbados, then shipped to the Cognac region to mature in Pierre Ferrand Cognac casks.
