Result : Intense, spicy, woody.

SYMBOL

The label depicts a plantation where oxen pull a plow through the earth to remember that Trinidad was an important land for sugar cane cultivation before rum was introduced. The Frieze highlights a red ibis, symbol of the island of Trinite also present on the coat of arms of Trinidad and Tobago.
