An opulent blend of the finest spirits aged for 8 to 15 years. Where Eclipse is floral and fruity, Extra Old blends significantly older barrels of mainly double pot distillates that have rounded these crisper notes into a subtler balance. It exudes the finesse that only time can bring and offers a true taste of paradise from the rum that invented rum.
Aromas: Perfect balance of ripe banana and toast, followed by vanilla, pastry and warm spice.
Taste: Rich, oaky and sharp.
Body: Rounded with a smooth finish.
This dry rum has a soft amber color and an enticingly warm caramel fragrance. On the tongue, it has a soft feel, with crème brûlée and banana flavors, braced up with lightly tannic black-tea notes and a baking spice finish. While a versatile choice for all manner of cocktails, the spice profile seems a natural for enlivening warm winter toddies.
