Grand Arome rums are the result of a particularly long and slow fermentation of the molasses, an old technique that brings out the most complex and intense flavours. This single cask bottling, entirely matured at the distillery in a tropical climate, is a perfect example of this intensity: big aromas of fermented fruit, anise, and the typically pungent, estery and funky note that is unique to slow fermentation. At the palate it strikes a stimulating balance between spicy tannins and the sweetness of the sugarcane.
This rum has been fully matured at the distillery of origin, in a Tropical climate.
The effect of the warm weather and humidity speeds the maturation process and the interaction with the oak of the cask: the result is a rum which is already perfectly mature and fully expressive at a relatively young age, and a very bold flavour profile which differs from that of rums which have been aged only for a period in the Tropics and then in Europe for the remaining maturation period.
Choosing between the bold taste of Tropical Ageing or the slower but subtler taste of Continental Ageing is a matter of personal preference, and the true connoisseur will enjoy tasting the difference between the two methods: since we consider this information important for the discriminating rum aficionado, we always declare it on the label!
