It is first aged in Fiji for 2-3 years in ex-bourbon barrels. Then it is sent to Cognac, France where it ages for an additional year in former Ferrand cognac casks. This launched in Europe in April 2020 and the US in September 2020.

  • Aged Rum
    Rum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
  • Cask Type
    ex-bourbon, finished in ex-cognac casks

Tasting Notes

"The cognac comes through on the nose most notably rather than the taste. The rum feels warming on the palate with a molasses flavor coupled with tropical fruits and baking spices. There's a coppery tinge to the taste. The rum is medium sweet and has an average length for the finish. Would use in a punch or in cocktails"
