We waited 29 years before freeing the spirit you are about to pour. We're a little ashamed to admit it, but we simply couldn't wait any longer. Please find it in your heart to forgive us, if you can. This particular rum is a unique and rare spirit, like a truly dazzling gem. It has the surging dynamism of a Rossini overture. On the nose, it literally explodes in myriad tones and fragrances which, with “scientific" patience, we must first identify and then catalogue. Dried figs, dates, walnuts and hazelnuts. Tones that alternate with summer fruits, over-ripe and bursting with sweetness. Suddenly, rushing and almost out of breath, come Asian overtones of citron, saffron, paprika, spices… and a long list of adulatory, sweet associations. On the palate it's equally rich, intriguing, virile, generous, expressive and tireless. It possesses a bewitching magnetism that draws you in… wins you over totally and never disappoints. It's reassuring and conveys a simple message:…for you who are drinking me, Rum will never be the same again. “I hasten to laugh at everything, for fear of being obliged to weep.” The Barber of Seville - G. Rossini 1816
