The brainchild of Felix Georg Kaltenthaler, Revolte Rum is produced in Germany from untreated sugarcane from Papua New Guinea. This is fermented at a low temperature (18˚C) in a long fermentation (12-13 days) using a specially cultured yeast strain before being...
distilled in a hybrid still. Finally, Revolte rests for six-months in earthenware containers before being hand-bottled.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 07/03/2016
(sample batch No.5 bottle 75 of 500) Clear, transparent.
Pungent estery notes reminiscent of strong blue cheese (Roquefort) with overripe pear, grassy cane sugar and white pepper spice. Estery dried and freshly cut grass with water.
Dry, estery and spicy. This is a huge rum which explodes with grassy flavours and muscular peppery spice. Water reveals pear fruit.
Overripe banana esters, cut grass and black pepper spirity spice.
Wonderfully raw and expressive rather than refined, with intense grassy and fruity esters.
