We are proud to present this 3 year old old pure cane juice rum distilled, aged and bottled in Tahiti by the Manutea distillery. It is available exclusively on our website.
We have selected this cask among others intended for the local market.
Indeed, the balance is perfect between, on the one hand, the roundness and the greediness resulting from the ageing in Banyuls casks, and on the other hand, the power brought by the bottling without reduction.
300 bottles were bottled for this single cask brut de fût.
Nico's tasting note
The nose expresses itself straight away with a beautiful expression of cane, enhanced by a touch of solvent which attests to the concentration of the rum. A few aromatics come to blow a subtle and chlorophyllous breeze, almost mentholated, which allows to maintain a very high and enthusiastic note. The exotic fruits such as banana are expressive, but also maintain a nice freshness.
With aeration, a perfect balance of ripe fruit, cane, velvety fresh aromatics, and a slight spicy caramel character develops. A slightly more roasted character develops as the rum rests, and the coffee accents pick up other fruity notes, which then turn more towards cherries and prunes in brandy.
The palate is just like the nose, very expressive and tasty, without excess and without any aggressiveness. The cane is lively, brilliant and round at the same time. It is surrounded by a concentrate of very ripe exotic fruits, sometimes fermented and acidic, sometimes sweet and velvety. These are enhanced by a hint of tannin, very quickly washed away by a drop of solvent, which opens the way to a very vegetal and minty freshness.
The finish is typical of the Manutea style, with a natural cane and liquorice, almost aniseed.
"The typicity and freshness of pure Manutea juice, sublimated by a superb concentration of melted and fruity tannins..."
Pauline's tasting note
On the nose, the esters evolve on greedy notes of flambéed bananas. With airing, the notes become toasted and cocoa-flavoured. A hint of caramel finishes filling the glass.
On the palate, the attack is frank and fruity. The woody flavours envelop the flambéed banana.
The finish is long and persistent. A few touches of liquorice add freshness.

Very good but a bit expensive
Very good but not for amateurs as it is very strong in my opinion
A great discovery with this free sample. A magnificent rum that I will soon be treating myself to.
High-quality rum. Not cheap but good value!
Exceptional rum, with a long lasting taste.
