Damoiseau Rhum and the Venerable Old Fashion Cocktail

     With its beautiful warm amber color, Damoiseau V.S.O.P. Rhum has a moderately off-dry body and is characterized by its exotic bouquet and aromas of dried fruits and spices.  This makes the perfect base for this very special cocktail based upon the classic Old Fashion.
