  • Named after the rarest stamp in the world, this limited edition expression is produced by the Medine Distillery from a blend of rums aged an average of seven years. Initial aromas of bicycle tire, acrylic, green apple and white grape lead to ripe mango and orange blossom, dark roasted coffee, very subtle honey, ripe banana and cloves plus wild cane grass. On the palate a light spicy bouquet over ethanol is followed by citrus and nuts, white pepper, white chocolate, vanilla and molasses, with an earthy, grassy, very hot mid-palate leading to a truffle note, dry sac sherry, with a hint of cardamom and cinnamon in the long dry finish.
