It initially smells of damp forest and mist. On the nose, the aromatic hand-picked herbs bring forth suggestions of green mountains.
Distant spice notes. Balsamic notes of mint. Ideas of green and thick jungles. Floral and arboreal puffs. Exotic vanilla. Sensations of distant laurel and fruit trees. And on opening, notes that are of oak. And notes that are not classic in rum.
And its finish, between casks and caramel, brings us the smell of rain and the “aroma a madre”. Of mandarin and orange trees when the storm arrives. It smells as it has to smell, a rum inspired by the habitat of gorillas.
