The distillery is situated in Belmopan. Molasses comes from locally crushed sugar cane. It is naturally fermented and then distilled in a triple column continuous still. This vintage was initially aged in Belize in heavy-char American Bourbon barrels before being re-barrelled in used white oak Bourbon casks that had previously been filled with other Caribbean rums.
Soft oak and vanilla notes giving way to a full-bodied palate with well-structured, elegant hints of orange crème brûlée and hazelnuts notes. Sweet and spicy wood comes first followed by candied fruit and caramel. Complex and persistent finish.
