Presentation

This 38-year-old rum is presented in a cube-shaped bottle sealed with a wax-covered cork. The amber colour of this 54% rum is deeper and darker than that of the Courcelles 47%, but its reflections still give it a nice shine. The nose is complex, pleasant and powerful. An aroma of baked banana develops over hints of spices, cinnamon and vanilla. In the mouth, this rum has plenty of character; the first impression is soft and smooth, but it has a strong personality. Dried fruit flavours initially dominate the taste, but spices such as cinnamon quickly join them. Hints of wood can also be detected. The 38 years spent in the barrel have not been wasted. The finish leaves a delightfully lingering aftertaste in the mouth. This ‘hors d'age’ rum is a fine discovery.
