This traditional molasses rum has been selected and blended by British merchant Berry Bros.
Distilled in 2000 in Nicaragua, it was aged for 12 years in oak barrels.
Nico's tasting note
The nose of this rum is simple but well balanced, and above all far from the stereotypes conveyed by Nicaragua's most famous brand. The heart is resolutely light, but the ageing process has allowed the wood to spread its notes of vanilla, blond caramel and tobacco. A light coconut then carries us towards nuts and roasting. Simple and effective.
As the rum passed around the rim of the glass begins to dry, the charm takes over and the rum becomes beautifully mellow. Forget the light rum, the tenderness of the cask takes all and regales us with its cottony wood, passed to butterscotch, tobacco and vanilla.
The entry in the mouth is in tune with it, it is very pleasant and greedy. The rum keeps its body quite light, hovering on the palate without ever falling back. However, the wood continues to show off its talent, with a white and tender fibre, tobacco, vanilla, coconut and caramel. As simple and effective as ever.
The finish gives way to more simply roasted notes, which this time leaves this light rum a little lacking.
"A greediness and a very "rum" identity reminiscent of those of Barbados, with all the same resolutely light character that clearly distinguishes it..."
There is no opinion yet.
