An impetuous blend. There’s a certain honesty to this rum that’s almost palpable and undeniable. Whenever you sip it you’re likely to find yourself drifting off somewhere, pausing to let your imagination take flight. You imagine doing great things, like leaping off a bridge and being catapulted into an apartment, smashing through the window to heroically rescue a dog. Or even just sitting there in peaceful silence, admiring a mountain view. Or standing back, almost hidden behind a door left slightly ajar, gazing at the women you love sleep and dream. Like a waterfall, the nose brings a rush of diverse scents and aromas: marjoram, myrtle, mint and nutmeg lead the procession. Followed by tones of chocolate, butter, sourdough and a toasted note that kindles the imagination. We could say it’s a “noisy”, yet soft bouquet. The mouth-feel is round, long and deep at the same time. The palate is subjected to a stream of different sensations. Our taste buds are constantly, incessantly stimulated, just like the great prairies are shaken by herds of buffalo charging together, headed West. Brush strokes of confectioner’s custard, peanut butter and hazelnut. On the palate…the tones detected on the nose amplify and, in some cases, the sweetest sensations above all are so strong that it’s like stepping inside an old Viennese patisserie shop. “…Stop dreaming. Start living… The greatest adventure is changing your own fate.”
