On the palate, the expertise is much sweeter, with quick, oxidized, sherry-like overtones, with aggressive notes of grapefruit-like citrus, mandarins, and honey-saturated graham crackers. Enduringly candy and fruity on the end, the rum provides a robust, boozy conclusion with echoes of chocolate and vanilla. A curious journey certainly. 110 proof. A- / $170
