Contrabando 5 Year Old Rum, Dominican Republic
Transport yourself to the Caribbean with a chilled glass of Contrabando served with a small amount of ice or the classic rum cocktail, Dark & Stormy (see below for recipe). This rum, so named after the days when rum was exported illegally from the Dominican Republic to Western Europe, is a hand-crafted and authentic dark rum made from the finest molasses.
On the nose there are enticing sweet vanilla, fresh coconut and tropical fruit aromas. In the mouth there is the perfect blend of toasted and balsamic flavours provided by oak barrel ageing.
