| English Harbour Antigua Rum (5 Years)|
English Harbour 5 Year Old is a medium-bodied, spicy, and smooth rum with luscious flavors of smoke, brown sugar, coconut, tangerine, and chocolate. Distilled in copper pot stills and judiciously aged in oak casks, this is a strikingly flavorful rum at a surprising price.
