This is the St. Aubin 50% infused with vanilla, sugar cane syrup is added which reduces it down to 40% abv. The vanilla pods used in the preparation of this rum come from St. Aubins own vanilla plantations. The nose is rich and luscious and abundant with vanilla. On the palate, the vanilla is upfront with agricole notes still coming through. The sweetness balances the rum out completely and makes for a wonderful sipping vanilla rum over ice or perfect in a vanilla daiquiri.
