Nose: Sweet, rich and sticky with hints of smoke, toffee, cinnamon, allspice, stewed fruits and cigar leaves.
Palate: Sticky toffee pudding, dates and walnuts, Molasses, dark brown sugar and vanilla spice.
Finish: Long, sweet and easy-going!
A fantastic Rum from Peru, it is no surprise that it has won so many medals. I would recommend in a heartbeat to anybody who wants a good sipping rum for a good price!

This was one of the first bottles of sipping rum that I purchased, and after finishing it with glee I revisited it some 12 months later. It tastes like a sweetened rum, very much like the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, and it’s easily drinkable. Would I buy another bottle? Probably not as I prefer the complexity and subtle sweetness of the El Dorado 12. Though this is a good rum for those who enjoy sweet and not particularly complex rums.

oh my! I just surprised a wedding party full of picky Irish & other liquor lovers with a couple of bottles of this bad boy. EVERYONE loved it, and no one needed any ice or anything else, all you need is the bottle. The two bottles were finished before any of the popular beer, champagne, very expensive scotch, and imported unique tequila. Maybe there is better rum out there (probably much more expensive) which I haven't discovered yet, but this one is a must try.
