Compared to the 1979, this one is slightly better. A piece of chocolate brings this one home. The vanilla is strong on this one and that in a good way. A very good rum and a big surprise.

Bottled in 2015 gives 30yo, Wow. The sweetness is lower than expected, which is good cause the ABV isn’t high enough to handle more sweetness. The medium long finish goes the same way as the palate.
