Tasting Notes

"The aroma of the rhum delivers bold oak notes with hints of spices, roasted nuts, dried fruit, and vanilla. On the palate the rhum delivers spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet vanilla. As the vanilla note wanes there is a pop of prunes as the oak tannins take over with a coffee and leather finish."
