Distilled in 2005 and aged for 16 years, this rum captivates with its complex aromas of port, plum, vanilla, and raisin.

“Actually in of the nicer expressions of those finished DDLs imo. The finish is quite dominating, but playing nicer with the Versailles than in some other bottlings. Still very dry towards the finish, but still enjoyable.”

“Nose Dark dried fruit port wine viiiiel port wine (for me completely üverlagernd) in addition comes something in the direction of dough (no money😁) and light pepper and mint .alcohol not optimally incorporated. Also here Port Port Port .... Plum and ne yet strong bitterness. In the finish slightly dry in the mouth and bitter.All in all not really something I would buy ... good that there are samplers. PLV not worth mentioning.”
