O Reizinho white 50° : Description and customer reviews

O reizinho 50° is an artisanal agricultural rum from Madeira. The cane is pressed as soon as it arrives at the distillery, during the harvesting season which runs from March to May. The pressing is done without adding water, unless the sugar concentration is higher than 18 brix, which would be too high to start fermentation. Fermentation is started by baker's yeast, without acids, and lasts for an average of 3 to 4 days. The temperature in the semi-open vats can be controlled according to the climatic conditions. The result is a cane wine with an alcohol content of around 12%.

Distillation is carried out in a traditional Portuguese still, a hybrid between a pot-still and a column, similar to those used in Armagnac. The distillate has an average strength of 60-70% and is then left to rest in stainless steel tanks before being reduced to 40-50%.

Nico's tasting notes

The nose is very natural, fresh, with a very ripe lime pulp. The generosity and sweetness of the cane are evident, without artifice or window dressing. This is a silky, vegetal cane brandy, with enough power to impose a beautiful presence. The pepper of the cane is present, the bagasse is mellow, and there is a hint of green olive.

With a little time, the cane takes over the lemon and sends it into the air. The balance is thus established, with a freshness retained but more discreet, for more depth. The cane is tender, diaphanous, as if delicately warmed by the first light of the sun. It seems relatively fragile, because even if its heart is full of sugar, it is no longer protected by its dry and peppery bark.

The mouth is perfectly greedy, round and seductive. The cane now develops a brioche-like quality, with a hint of yeast. Then it becomes candied and fills the palate comfortably. Its fragility is now expressed by subtle notes of steamed artichoke or chestnut. The lemon is still there, as is the pepper, both of which melt and carry the cane high. The texture is so soft that one can hardly imagine the 50% of the rum.

The finish is lighter, a little liquorice. The cane disappears quietly with everything else, always with elegance.

"A very beautiful cane brandy, delicate and elegant but not only that, as it also offers a very tasty intensity..."

    Rather soft ron, very textured and round in the mouth, you don't feel the 50°.
