The color is a rich mahogany, though clear. The aroma is a burst of classic Demerara with a wonderful mix of brown sugar and molasses. Notes of leather, tobacco, dried sultanas, nutmeg, clove, and cassia. The aroma finishes with soft oak, caramel, and rich English toffee.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Sweet and salty on the nose like trail mix with raisins, salted nuts, toasted oats and a touch of caramel. Spice laden in the mouth with intense cinnamon, medjool dates and caramel followed by dark roasted coffee. (Mar 2015)
Deep amber color. Rubber sap, marinated vinegar, caramel taffy, ad brown spice aromas. A round entry leads to a glycerous off-dry medium-to full bodied palate with sherried brown spices, mineral spirits, roasted Brazil nuts, cedar, and toffee. Finishes with a touch of shellac, exotic peppercorn, and very spicy heat. A very hearty, traditional navy rum.
