ABV: 50% ABV
Age: 18 Months
Nose: Bright, funky, grassy. Complex and interesting, but so different than most other rum, even agricole style rums. Almost faintly meaty in one sniff, then grassy, fruity, and fungal in another.
Taste: Medium body, bright green apple and strawberry. Soil and must, a hint of grassy character. Loaded with pepper, bitter root and a hint of beet.
Finish: Long, powerful, faintly rubber. I have been playing raquetball a lot lately in quarantine and the finish reminds me of a fresh rubber note I get in my sinuses when I open a new bucket of raquetballs. In a good way. Weird, I know.
Overall: Lovely and fun, exciting and unique, well executed and complex. I love what is going on here.
