SUBTLE AND FLORAL
 

This vintage was distilled in 2005 in a four column still at Trinidad Distillers, and has been aged 11 years in Trinidad, then matured 2 years in Ferrand casks.

Rising fruit notes create a citrus explosion of lemon and pear, followed by grilled almond, popcorn and paprika. It is a fresh and floral rum, perfect as an after diner drink.
