AKAL Chai Rum Reserve
The first and only Botanical rum of its kind in the world. An officially recognized trade secret process in Trinidad & Tobago. Two distilling arts are combined, the art of the spirit distiller and the art of the perfumer. Limited reserve dark rum from Trinidad and Tobago aged in single bourbon barrels is married to two types of high altitude tea from India and tropical aromatic flower petals to create this "Luxury Spirit of Rum". This rum can be enjoyed equally as a sipping product as well as in elevated rum cocktails.
Sophisticated & complex the notes are slightly nutty at the start and evolve quickly into caramel and vanilla, rising to a crescendo of tingling spice. The finish is long and redolent of the rum's malty black tea of the high Himalaya.
