The rum is blended each year and the casks for this “1931” Second Edition include a combination of American white oak casks and Port casks from 2004, 2005 and 2006.
Amber mahogany, rich mixed fruit, dried figs and fruitcake with sweet vanilla and roasted spices with some nail polish.
Potent, intense and bitter initially; a roasted vanilla bitter-sweetness with cooked mixed fruit and mocha develops, followed by a very long, savoury, persistent, peppery-spicy finish.
Mellow and harmonious - a soft, supple, aged, rum of depth and complexity. Good.
Match with dark chocolate, espresso and a cigar.
