This award-winning Dominican rum is produced from raw sugarcane and aged 12 years in American oak casks. This rum is named for the wooden schooner that is best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition. This expression earned a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast in 2013 and a Gold Award from The Fifty Best in 2014. A great "hidden gem" for any rum lover.

"Rich amber color; lush vanilla, sugarcane and wood nose; toasted, elegant and dense with lovely flavors of rich vanilla.... 93 Points."

Product Details

This deep mahogany colored Dominican rum is produced from raw sugarcane and aged 12 years in American oak casks. Tasting presents a sweet aroma balanced heavily toward cane honey, with earthy sugar cane undertones, along with a hint of vanilla, luscious toasted oak, caramel and dried fruits. Initial taste reveals a nectar-sweet quality,leading to a weightier body that indicates substantially aged rum that’s serious in character but not overbearing. Light notes of vanilla and wood hit the palate transforming into an incredibly smooth offering.
