"Roasted walnuts, spice cake, cocoa and mint appear along with vanilla and oak on the nose. The initial entry of this rhum brings spice notes, brown sugar and oak, while sugarcane, tarragon and dark chocolate appear later. The finish brings a bit of oak, roasted coffee bean, walnut and cacao nib at the end."
