- Nose: Honeyed raisins on the nose and a hint of vanilla and tobacco.
- Palate: Sweet, with intense brown sugar, creme brûlée tones and balanced by dry toasty oak. A complex finish with good oak integration, caramel and tropical spice.
- The HMS Princessa was originally a Spanish vessel but was captured by the British in 1780 at the battle of Cape St. Vincent. Captained by Charles Knatchbull with Rear Admiral Francis Samuel Drake aboard, this 70 gun ship of the line was one of the first ships to engage the French in the Battle of the Saints. Fighting valiantly the Princessa engaged the enemy throughout the battle and inspired us to create this rum which embodies power and integrity. The HMS Princessa contains rums aged exclusively in American white oak Bourbon casks with all the rums having been aged between 5 - 9 years in our cellars before blended together by our master blender.
