Rich and full with golden syrup, Demerara and a hint of treacle. This 8 years old rum, product of the batch distillation process, has reassuringly weighty oak in the background with polished mahogany notes, hints of cinnamon, over ripe oranges or orange liqueur and bitter dark chocolate. Amazingly smooth, gentle texture like being stroked with a silk glove. Chocolate velvetiness on the palate, with creamy oak spice and citrus notes counteracting the syrupy sweetness. A sweet cocoa caress, with shimmering spices.
