  • 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
    used bourbon, sherry, and Cognac casks

Tasting Notes

"Pouring the rum in the glass brings the aroma of sugared banana and pineapple with hints of oak and allspice. On the palate the sugary fruits found on the aroma dance across the tongue with the oak tannins joining in midway. Subsequent sips reveal allspice and a pop of menthol, with a light hit of acetone as the alcohol lights up around the mouth. All of this combines into a long, light bittersweet finish."
