Dzama Cuvée Noire Prestige is a blend of rums from Ambilobé and Namakia, two distilleries located in the North-East of Madagascar.
This is a region that is particularly dense with vanilla plants. The roots of the sugar cane intermingle with those of the vanilla plant, giving this rum particularly intense vanilla flavours.
Nico's tasting notes
The nose is soft and caramelised, evoking vanilla biscuits. As in a well-buttered cake, the aromas nestle in a comfortable and greedy roundness. Aeration rids the rum of its lighter alcohol notes, the vanilla then escapes with them. What remains is the milk jam, the cream glaze and the candy sugar.
The palate remains in exactly the same register, but with a little more spice. The buttered biscuit is sprinkled with sweet pepper and a hint of aniseed. The alcohol tickles and shakes the taste buds a bit, but the vanilla calms it all down very quickly.
The finish is sweet and a little flowery. A little cherry/vanilla sweetness comes in at the very last moment.
"A very biscuity, round and greedy profile, a rum for snacking..."
