Privateer New England White Rum is an American molasses rum from Massachusetts. It is a rum that pays homage to the old rum tradition of the New England colonists. The ancestor of the founder of the distillery was a Privateer, a privateer involved in the American Revolution at the end of the 18th century.
The molasses used comes from a single farm in Guatemala and is fermented for 6 days. The distillation is carried out in pot stills, then in columns. The reduction is carried out over 2 months, to obtain a sweet and fragrant white rum.
Nico's tasting note
The nose opens with a light but rather round and fruity rum. The first notes that reach us are those of a harlequin candy of a mellow kind, like a very sweet melon. We stay in the confectionery business, with Haribo bananas and some coconut meringues.
With aeration, a few ethereal hints escape and carry with them other fruits, still in a tangy atmosphere. An almost milky layer settles with time, like a sweet yoghurt with red fruits.
The palate and its fluid texture offer us a snapshot of ripe cane at the attack, which quickly melts into soft, tangy banana candy. Lightness prevails in the mid-palate and the rum swarms delicately on the tongue.
The finish is gently fruity, with crushed strawberries and raspberries giving way to a savoury cane sugar.
"A molasses rum with a nice variety of aromas, all in delicacy..."
There is no opinion yet.
