On opening the bottle, an exceptional bouquet of aromas fills the air. At 90 proof, it has a delicate floral body but packs a good punch. Color is red mahogany, clarity is very good and viscosity suggests an old rum with fine delicate legs.

I am surprised and impressed with this bottle of rhum. I would substitute it for a cognac of the same price any day. If it's about $45 a bottle, I'd say it's well worth the price.
Sounds wonderful Robert. Is this a new intro to the USA market? Or from a "source"?
