Unfortunately, we didn't arrive in time to take a tour, but during the tasting, we found that this distillery has quite a selection of rums. I bought a bottle dessert rum meant to pour over ice.

Had a nice tasting and bought a couple bottles of rum and whiskey. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and did not pressure us to buy. Nice place to spend 30-45 minutes.
