Meermaid Infused Rum is a blended rum that originated in Germany in 2004 after several attempts to combine quality rums, fruits, and exotic spices.
It was finally decided to let the chosen ingredients infuse naturally into the rum, and thus Meermaid Infused Rum was born.
This rum is made by hand in small batches. The base blend is made up of rums from Trinidad & Tobago and Jamaica.
After two weeks of infusion, the fresh fruit, dried fruit and spices are removed before the contents are bottled.
No filtration or sugar is added.
While this rum can be served dry or on the rocks, it goes well with a ginger beer.
Laurent's tasting note
Her dress is straw.
On the nose, this rum offers a nice assortment of many different aromas. Spices (nutmeg, cinnamon and curry), citrus fruits (orange and lemon) and light tea notes make up the profile. The alcohol is quite discreet and the whole is fresh.
On the palate, the attack is soft, then becomes drier. Orange and spices are the two dominant markers.
The finish is very long, still with spices and orange zest.
