Selected and imported by MinistryOfRum.com founder Ed Hamilton, this gold rum is a blend of extra light, light, and heavy pot-still rums. The molasses used is from sugar grown on the Worthy Park Estate where the rum is distilled. Located 1,200 feet above sea level, the distillery is situated in the Vale of Lluidas, and produces mostly bulk rum. The rums for this product are imported in small batches and colored with gold tint sugar-based caramel.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma of the rum is alcohol-forward carrying notes of funky cooked ripe bananas, raisins, and caramelized pineapple. On the palate the rum delivers flavors of chewy vanilla, ripe bananas, grassy cane, with a strong undertone of anise. Baking spices help flatten the anise note causing the caramelized banana flavors to surge to the forefront. As they fade notes of copper, charcoal, and vegetal cane dance with the banana flavor in a mineral rich finish. "
