All the components of the gift come inside a wooden box with a black satin lid, a practice designed to give away.
In the rum gift pack we find two "tumbler" glasses, short and wide, perfect for rum, since if we wish, they allow us to use larger ice cubes, which take longer to melt and cool for more rum time without lowering it.
Different botanicals and dried fruit to make rum cocktails.

Style: Añejo rum.
Aging: Rums age an average of twelve years in bourbon American oak barrels.
Nose: Full, with outstanding notes of vanilla, coconut and oak.
Mouth: Sweet notes of cocoa and caramel give way to an end dominated by the barrel in the form of toast, vanilla and a bourbon souvenir.
