Absolutely delicious. Vanilla, caramel, chocolate, and cigars are the major players. Tickles the tongue, no burn. Starts with an immediate hit of vanilla and caramel, as it dances across the tongue, the chocolate and cigar flavours make their debut. 30 year perfection. Best enjoyed neat with dark chocolate.
Nice amber color with golden reflections. The nose is very pastry and well balanced with notes of caramel, citrus, candied fruits, vanilla and after some time chocolate. On the palate we can feel a very nice and hot sweet sensation. Vanilla still present with citrus fruit, but also apricot; banana. The final is very long with tobacco and the chocolate is coming back. Very nice rum to finish a beautiful evening.
Bottled in 2015 gives 30yo, wow!
When warmed up in your hand with the other hand over the glass opening it has sting when coming to the nose.
It’s very smooth, balanced and complex. The sweetness is much lower than expected.
There’s amongst other tastes vanilla, caramel etc but also tobacco which fades out a little if you let the rum stand in your glass for a while.
The afterburn is medium long.
As a summary a fantastic rum that’s very close to a 10.
