The palate is concentrated on aromas of light tropical fruits, citrus oils and hints of green apple. Then, notes of ripe sugar cane, citrus peel and a hint of vanilla compote. Finally, the aged Barbadian component takes centre stage, as the tropical aging of the rum, in formerly used American oak barrels, leaves a slight oakiness on the finish.
