A sweet and floral nose. Perfumed violets mingle with a touch of port-like black cherry, creamy American oak, cigar boxes, cigar leaf and sweet raisinated, pruny fruit cake. The distinct PX signature of dark, slightly burnt treacle is evident but amazingly well integrated. Oh, and did I mention the spices? Damn they are good! Woody, peppery with a touch of chilli spice, nutmeg, cinnamon and clove oil. A simply stunning nose!

The palate is luscious and sweet, opening with a good dollop of thick, PX treacle and slightly edgy dried fruit. It has an almost Cognac-esque dried fruit rancio along with dusty violets, cinnamon, nutmeg and chilli infused dark chocolate. Rich and chewy with hints of sweet tobacco. An exceptionally long molasses/ coffee finish which is accented by sweet coriander spice A truly multi-dimensional rum which is so smooth it’s untrue.
