Nice presentation box. The rum in the glass shows really slow thick legs. It has a nice balance in smell of vanilla and oak. Minimum after burn, the after taste of this rum just goes on for ages. It has you smacking your lips together thinking about the complexity of flavours you just had from this rum.
The nose is full with orange peel, cinnamon, oak, chocolate and dried fruits. It's nice, but not unique. The palette is potent with deep semi-sweet notes of oak, brown sugar, tabaco and leather. There's a long and fairly spicy finish, resemblent of white pepper perhaps. It's indeed very good but also overpriced. At this kinda money, some other bottles offer very intense experiences.The rum itself probably deserves a 9 rating, but the price drags it down.
