From the Creators
The rums that we have chosen for our blend create an unusual flavor palate.
The Salvadorian rum on its own brings a fruit-forward tropical nose with a light, dry finish.
In addition to this we wanted an earthiness, with a fiery warm flavor, to create the perfect liquid.
The small amount of Jamaican rum completed this flavour profile and created the perfect balance.
On the nose, the aromas of tropical fruits are most apparent with fresh banana and sticky pineapple.
Adding to this there is a deeper aroma of rich raisins and prunes.
The palate brings the same tropical fruit notes, but with a developing toasted-warm, spicy caramel flavor.
Balanced with creamy milk chocolate, roasted almond and dried chewy apricot notes.
