Rum Blend: Bounty Spiced Rum is macerated with natural, local Lucian spices: cinnamon, vanilla, clove, nutmeg, allspice and bois bande (bark of the tree Richeria grandis).
Molasses: The Bounty Spiced Rum is produced from Demerara molasses from Guyana. The sugar cane in the Demerara river basin grows in soil that is on the equator and below sea level. This lends itself to thrive in the rich silt and dense humidity, producing one of the best sugars and molasses.
Tasting Notes: Following the long tradition of Saint Lucian spiced rum, Bounty Spiced Rum is an infusion of spices with the bark of Richeria grandis, known locally as "bois bande." It is claimed the bark has potent qualities and gives the aged rum base an exotic and authentic "Lucian" spiced rum experience. Cola and warm spice show on the nose with a roundness on the palate. The finish is clean and lingers with spice notes specific to the bois bande bark.
