“Got this 5cl sample from the RR Tasting Club. The Emperor Sherry finished Rum is a a blend of aged rum made from fresh sugar cane juice (40%) and molasses (60%). This amber colored rum is aged in American and French oak barrels for 5-12 years whereafter it’s given a 6-month finish in sherry casks before bottled. Overall it’s quite alike the Heritage version, but with Sherry hints of course. For me it’s too sweet and I characterize it as a rum mostly belonging to the Spanish style.”
