Our single blended, 6 year old cask aged rum has a rich amber hue, and bouquet saturated with the aromas of coffee, chocolate, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg, all of which carry through to the palate along with the flavors of cloves, anise and caramel all play in stupendous balance — long spicy finish. An excellent sipping rum. Assertive aromatics and brilliant flavors make it a great choice for use in classic Tiki cocktails.


Single blended, 5 year old rum infused with organic cacao has the essence of coffee and butterscotch on the nose, the echo of dark chocolate is restrained but solidly present in the bouquet. Decadent dark chocolate flavor comes to the forefront on the first sip, layered with a back note of Bing cherry and cream soda.
