Aged: No age statement
Product of: Mauritius
Well, dear readers, we believe the reason that Jeffrey is so "tight-lipped" is because his rum is basically Green Island rum made by International Distillers which he has had bottled in a tall, triangular bottle to command a considerable premium to what Green Island sells at outside the USA. Hats off to you Jeffrey. That being the case, we surmise that Starr African Rum is distilled from fermented molasses using a four-column process and is a blend of rums aged 3-5 five years, charcoal filtered prior to bottling to remove the colour imparted by ageing and to purify the rum.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 13/03/2012
Translucent but with slight sediment in suspension.
Clean, delicate nose with faint chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon.
Soft, light, clean palate has subtle vanilla sweetness with notes of coconut, toffee and fennel. (Some added sweetness post distillation suspected.)
Slightly spicy finish with vanilla, milk chocolate and cinnamon.
