Dzama Cuvée Blanche Prestige is a rum designed by Franck Fohine, the son of the creator of Dzama rums.
It is made in a very original way. Here are the 3 main stages in its manufacture.
First step: a rum-based maceration
All the fruits and spices typical of the island of Madagascar are combined with the rum: citrus fruits, pineapples, lychees, mangoes, grenadilla, as well as ginger and vanilla. The whole is macerated in the barrels usually used for ageing rum. New casks, but mostly casks that have contained whisky imported from Scotland for the local market.
Second stage: the barrels full of fruit and spices welcome a new rum
The casks are then completely emptied and the contents used as the basis for the production of arranged rums. They are then filled with a 40° rum which is then aged for a year. It then has plenty of time to absorb the aromas that have taken over the wood of the barrels.
Third and final stage: filtering and bottling
The rum is filtered through charcoal and thus regains its original colour. It is therefore only white in colour! In fact, we have chosen to classify it as an infused rum.
Nico's tasting notes
The nose is very lemony and fresh, rather sweet too. All forms of lemon are represented, lemongrass, lime syrup, yuzu. One can imagine some bitter peels, but also the juicy pulp, everything is there.
The mouth is soft but not excessively sweet. The attack of the citrus fruits is therefore very round, the peels are candied and the pulp reduced to syrup.
The finish is slightly spicy, which makes it live a good moment on the palate.
"A very lemony rum, round and fresh at the same time.
