Nose: Molasses, grass, caramel, cherry blossom, dark chocolate coated orange candy, orange peel and marmalade.
Palate: Seville orange with matcha Japanese green tea bitterness and chocolate
Finish: The finish is reasonably long. What starts out as a duel between the sweetness of the port and the influence of the oak finished up as a waltz, or maybe a tango!
American Oak Port Casks
Comment: This is a rum for grown-ups. The sickly sweetness so common in commercial rums is missing, so too the presence of added spices. It is smart, graceful and sophisticated.
