Category: Unaged / Rhum blanc
Product of: Guadeloupe
A 'premium' un-aged agricole rum distilled on the island of Marie-Galante, from sugar cane grown on the island.
Sampled on 19/07/2014
Beyond the heady smell of estery ethanol lies grassy, fruity (strawberry and tinned pineapple) sugar cane aromas.
Wonderfully flavoursome, yet clean with red berry fruit, strong grassy flavours, slight vegetal and a slight smokiness. Water opens and releases sweetness.
Peppery heat (even when diluted), dried grass and delicate sweetness.
Closure: Synthetic stopper
