Distiller: Flor De Cana
An 18-year old, ultra premium rum that is full-bodied with a brilliant amber color. Exquisite aroma with notes of nuts and caramel and a flavor of intense vanilla and spices, with a long and extra smooth finish. Best enjoyed neat or on the rocks, with a peel of orange.
Nose: oily, fine. The first nose is marked by pipe tobacco, gingerbread, fresh fruit (peach, apricot, orange) and rose petals. It becomes more and more spicy (cardamom, cinnamon) and more and more exotic (mango, banana). It evolves then towards a more balsamic tone (grains of mustard).
Mouth: oily, silky. Of an incredible delicacy, its touch is still light. The fragrance of white peaches and apricots are covered with a layer of chocolate and praline and crossed by linden honey as well. Gourmand, it evokes a rum bab The third fragrance (moss, lichen), preserves intact the fruity influence intervening after the debut on the smell and taste palette.
Aftertaste: silky, with a hint of notes of tobacco and inebriating flowers (carnation). His touch is always so delicate though a little drier. Licorice and cinnamon gradually wrap the taste buds. The retro scent is a mixture of fruits, dried flowers, coriander and oak. The empty glass is syrupy, floral (hyacinth, peony) and milky.
