About this release
As most people know we are also rum lovers and have our origin in the rum scene. Therefore, we are pleased to present our first collaboration with RumX: an incredibly vibrant Chairman’s Reserve Rum from St. Lucia distilled in 2005 (50% John Dore I & 50% Vendôme) that was aged for 15 years in tropical conditions in an ex-bourbon cask.
Unsurprisingly, the bouquet just explodes with funky aromas such as smoked forest honey, agave, black cherry, and camphor. Also expect dried exotic fruits such as mango and papaya, garnished with pure vanilla pods.
On the palate, the wild party continues with a wave of dark chocolate, sweet almonds, cinnamon and vanilla cream, leaving at its peak a long and resonant blast of pepper, tar, and citrus peel.
With its edgy, fresh and funky style, rum from St. Lucia is unique and distinctive in the spirits world, making it a perfect fit for our first rum project. Just as you would expect from Grape of the Art, this rum is without additives and bottled in cask strength of 61.5%!
Don’t get me wrong, it is an unusual and funky one, but very interesting and of high quality. But you should be into such rums. (87+/100)Slowdrink.de
