EXTRA OLD, in its category, is the reference of the rum world. It is a masterful blend of the finest, aged spirits, selected attentively amongst the oldest reserves with a resulting maturity of 17 years. The force of its oak aromas is softened by its sweet, fruity notes, reminiscent of pastry and bananas. Easily identified thanks to its traditional label and its malt whisky type bottle, its magnificent luminosity, dark amber colour and extreme clarity are the key qualities of this rum. The result of many years of meticulous development, EXTRA OLD has received several Grand Gold Medals and Trophies from the highly respected International Institute for Quality competition.
APPEARANCE: Colour - Brilliant amber-brown; Clarity - Brilliant luminescence
AROMA: First nose : good oak level, dry, good balance of fragrances, moderate intensity of general aroma
Second nose : evidently sweeter and more aromatic than on first nose. The predominant aroma is the rich, mellow, oak character, which is in perfect balance with the sweet, fruity notes and light banana-type aroma of a well matured double distilled rum, Light, burnt-wood character, Subtle sugar cane note
TASTE: Light-bodied, excellent level of well-digested wood character which harmonizes well with the aroma, exceedingly smooth
