The bottle alone is striking with its raffia weave. This excellent rum is double aged, first in Bourbon casks, then shipped to France to age in Pierre Ferrand Cognac casks, which give it a pretty amber color. Possessing a subtle, elegant aroma of vanilla and toffee, it is an absolutely delicious sipping rum. You may detect hints of cinnamon and vanilla cream in its flavor and its sweet finish. It has been described as "voluptuous", and I wouldn't argue with that.
