Tasted: Apr 2011
Deep, darkly scented aromas of dark toffee/ honey coated dried fruits. Superb complexity with some aged Pedro Ximinez wood producing an almost damp Armagnac-esque rancio along with hints of liquorice, smoke, citrus conserve, nuts and with time a slight perfumed-herbal peatiness.

Off-sweet on the palate. Unctuous in a sort of Diplomatico fashion. Full of liquorice, nuts, dried raisinated fruit and burnt, bitter toffee. Although it seems initially to be quite broad and sweet it has a delightful lightness of touch and a lovely balance, which moves into an agricole-esque, floral, tobacco and citrus peel finish. Superb length with the wood returning with a touch of dusty spices.

A really interesting rum, which seems to bridge the gap between a molasses based rum and an agricole.
