This HSE very old VSOP rum is aged in Bourbon oak casks and in French oak casks on the beautiful plantation Saint Ã Etienne in Gros-Morne, Central Martinique. This process confers this exceptional rum a Creole flavor and a spicy, aromatic palate.
\nThe nose is rich with candied fruit: apricot, peach, cantaloupe, followed by notes of grilled almonds and caramel with buttered coffee and clove. The taste is superb and enhances the nose: a broad, warm attack, admirably envelopes the palate.
\nIts mellow nature and viscosity accentuate the lasting taste of this very old rum.
