The first expression is a white rum which blends plots 1 and 7, and is bottled at 57.5% ABV, having been matured for 8 months in stainless steel vats. It carries an RRP of 45 EUR, with a total of 17,400 bottles released.

Official tasting notes tells us "this rum reveals a rather intense attack but quickly gives way to a subtle sweetness of notes of fresh sugar cane, lime and citrus".

The second expression, Constellation 2018, is aged for 3 years in Cognac barrels, and bottled at 50% ABV. It carries an RRP of 60 EUR, with a total of 3,000 bottles released.

Official tasting notes tells us "this rum reveals a fairly frank attack on notes of dried fruits and quickly gives way to the elegance and finesse of the woody notes. The finish is greedy, with notes of exotic fruits and flambéed banana".
