As might be expected from a rum affiliated with a Cognac maker, this honey-colored spirit is finished in old Cognac barrels. The end result is luxe but light, yielding caramel and orange peel aromas, as well as loads of sweet honey and creamy caramel on the palate, accented with a bright touch of lemon. Especially enjoyable mixed with ginger beer, Dark & Stormy-style.

Scents include brown sugar, molasses, vanilla bean, ripe tropical fruit, marzipan, refined sugar and honey. Taste features intriguing, bittersweet tastes of black pepper, molasses, dark chocolate and palm oil. Finish is long, bittersweet and woody.

The bright copper color is warm and appealing to the eye; excellent purity; the first whiffs discover deep scents that include brown sugar, molasses, and vanilla bean — seven minutes of further air contact unleash layers of aroma that consist of succulent ripe tropical fruit (baked banana?), marzipan, refined sugar, and honey; the palate entry features off-dry flavors of sweet oak and maple — at midpalate, there’s a whole army of intriguing, bittersweet tastes including black pepper, molasses, dark chocolate, and palm oil; the finish is long, bittersweet, and woody, every bit the match of the earlier expression; a truly lovely, sophisticated rum that’s true to the tradition profile of Barbados.
