HERBÀceo : CARRESSING AND PLAYFUL
 

Distilled in a column then aged for nine years in Bourbon casks, this rum epitomises the mastering of superb nurturing. Dressed in blond mahogany, the rum first expresses violet flower notes, then reveals sumptuous red fruits, before the release of warm aromas of vanilla and cinnamon. Round and smooth, its long finish offers flavors of blond tobacco and wood.
