84.6 PROOF

For the 23 year expression, freshly distilled rum is laid into used American Oak bourbon whiskey casks for 3 years before transition into used rye whiskey casks for an additional 20 years to complete the desired aging duration. Aromas of bitter vanilla and creamy, toasted sugar, butter and wood, almost a creme brûlée, with juicy fruit and coconut banana cherry/almond subtleties. The palate opens with a delicate sweet butter and caramel entry before a bright warmth in mid-palate leads to rich wood, a little more cherry/almond, then cacao nibs after mid-palate. Delicious dessert notes fade into wood in the finish.
