flavors: Very deep mahogany hue,
Nose: Coconut, butterscotch, toasted wood and brown sugar aromas.
Body: Full-bodied, with a deep layering effectPalate: Soft, rich textures with a seamless feel throughout
Finish: Wonderful spicy fruit flavors that keep stretching on for miles.
Seductive nose is juicy, with ripe, fruity aromas of baked apple, baked pear, nutmeg, vanilla bean, cardamom and dried orange peel. Flavor is firm, bittersweet, focused and more maple-like than sugary. Ends moderately oily and keenly bittersweet. In that league of aged rums that begin to resemble brandies. -90-95 points Wine Enthusiast
