Dark gold with bronze reflections. Super attractive nose filled with brown sugar, char and dark chocolate. Honey, toffee and raisins follow. Great flavours in the mouth follow the nose and add some ripe banana and then lots of vanilla. Seems somewhat sweet but sets off all the flavours in grand style. Great balance, fine texture and very smooth flow across the palate. Good mature notes lead into very mellow and satisfying finish. A great rum.

International Wine & Spirit Competition 2009 Gold (Best In Class)  
Dark, old gold. Monster nose simply packed full of wide range of fine rum characters. Main features are dark brown sugar, dark chocolate, coffee and some roasted nut. Then follow some citrus notes with candied orange and dark, old marmalade. All repeats in deep, honey sweet mouth. Slow flow across the palate with great distribution of the flavours. Mellow and mature yet very much alive. Long, full finish. Gorgeous rum.
International Wine & Spirit Competition 2008 Gold (Best In Class)  
Bright gold. Exceptional nose with dark chocolate, coffee, candied orange, roasted almonds and vanilla. Deep, rich, rounded mouth with super honeyed sweetness. The mouth spreads the flavours over all the taste buds and reinforces the great character of a serious rum.

Grape Variety: Rum

Rum is a spirit made in various styles and in many (mostly tropical) locations around the world. Sugarcane is the raw ingredient behind all rum styles, from clear Cuban ron blanco to the darkest Jamaican Navy Rum. Some rums, notably and Brazilian cachaça and Rhum Agricole from the French West Indies, are distilled directly from cane juice. Most, however, is made from molasses, the thick, black, syrupy by-product of the sugar production process.

Rum's origins lie very much in a place and time, namely the Caribbean of the 17th Century. During this period, the islands were being colonized by settlers from various European countries, particularly England, France, Spain, Portugal and Holland. These early colonists naturally sought out a way of producing alcohol – not just for its intoxicating properties, but as a way of makin ... more

Region Hierarchy
  • Guyana

    Guyana is a country located on the Atlantic coast of northern South America. It is quite distinct from French Guiana, to the east, although the pair are united through their colonial history. The two are now separated by Suriname, another erstwhile colony, and all three countries share their southern borders with their larger neighbor, Brazil.

    The name of Guyana's capital, Georgetown, betrays its former status as a colony of the British Empire. Previously it was under Dutch control, but despite the influence of these wine-thirsty European cultures, Guyana has never produced wine on any scale. Due to the country's coastal situation just a few degrees north of the equator, the climate here is simply too warm and humid for successful viticulture. Only in exceptional circumstances have grape-growing ventures made it to equatorial ... more

  • Rest of World

    'Rest of World' is a phrase rapidly becoming less and less meaningful (and less easily definable) with each year that passes in the modern wine world. Wine is now produced in more and more regions all over the world, and production volumes in established stalwarts such as France, Italy, Spain and Germany are steadily reducing. Long-dormant vineyard zones are being revived (in Georgia, for example) and new wine-bearing terroirs are being sought out in locations as far-flung as ... more
