36,38

SUBTLE AND FLORAL

This vintage was distilled in 2008 in a four column still at Trinidad Distillers, and has been aged 10 years in Trinidad, then matured 1 years in Ferrand casks.

Rising fruit notes create a citrus explosion of lemon and pear, followed by grilled almond, popcorn and paprika. It is a fresh and floral rum, perfect as an after diner drink.

TASTING NOTES

Nose : Citrus fruit layered with peach and mango introduce an intense sensation. Flowering honey soon emerges from a lightly wooded field of nutmeg and lightly peppered notes.

Palate : Rising fruit notes create a citrus explosion of lemon and pear. Grilled almond, popcorn and paprika complete the evolution.

Result : Intense, spicy, woody.

SYMBOL

The label depicts a plantation where oxen pull a plow through the earth to remember that Trinidad was an important land for sugar cane cultivation before rum was introduced. The Frieze highlights a red ibis, symbol of the island of Trinite also present on the coat of arms of Trinidad and Tobago.
