RUSTIC AND INTENSE

JAMAICA 2005


Vintage series 2019

Description


This 2005 vintage rum highlights the ancestral Jamaican style: a long fermentation and a 100% pot still distillation blended from the two mythic Long Pond and Clarendon distilleries.

After 12 years ageing in Jamaica and 1 to 2 years in France, banana, prune, roasting coffee and raisin notes endow it with depth, while spices elevate the rum to a rare and distinguished spirit.

The label references Port Royal in Jamaica, a strong symbol of the island and seat of the British government as well as the main fishing and trade port
