90%-ish Pot still
20% column still rum/ 80% pot still rum
Aged up to 12 years
Re-Tasted: July 2014
The nose is denser and darker than the Reserva with a greater degree of heavy pot still character. Hints of sandalwood, raisins, cane sugar, molasses and crystalised orange mingle with slightly leathery and cigar leaf notes. Extremely complex aromas with the fruit displaying a light jamminess and with time the tropical fruit becomes gently perfumed.

The palate is quite sweet with buckets of milk chocolate, coffee, toffee, maple syrup, dried tropical raisinated fruit, orange and nuts. The coffee comes through quite forcefully on the middle bringing hints of liquorice and cinnamon. Amazing depth and length with a light violet note emerging along with a touch of brown sugar. It may sound like a huge sweet monster but that little amount of column still rum just about balances the sweetness and freshens the finish.
