The rich and intense style of Jamaica and Barbados, with their notes of plum, banana and vanilla, is enhanced by meticulous blending and further maturation, in France. The result is a profound structure spiced with notes of cinnamon and clove, whose smoky quality adds texture. An ideal companion for cocktails.
Aroma: Hints of black peppercorn, clove, cinnamon, baked cherry, prune, molasses; later sniffs encounter forest, leaves, black tea, dry stone.
Taste: Entry is fruity with white raisins, dried pineapple, and is off-dry. Midpalate is spicy, piquant and significantly drier than the entry stage. Ends spicy.
