Aged 8 years in cask #152-05-03 in Saint Lucia at Saint Lucia Distillers Ltd. then shipped to the US where the contents of this barrel was diluted for bottling.
The aroma of this full-flavored, pot still rum is full of ripe fruit, brown spice and burnt wood notes. The smoky wood dominates the initial taste that eases into a viscous body of baked bananas, apples and cinnamon and the lingering finish that combines tropical fruit under the smoky spice that is present throughout this aged rum.

The distillate is condensed at about 82% ABV
After distillation, the distillate is collected in large tanks where several batches of distillate are blended. From these tanks, second-use American oak barrels are filled with fresh rum at about 70% ABV.
