Until the beginning of the 2000’s, Mauritian law dating back from the
British colonial era enforced distillers to distil at high abv, above 93 %.
The island has experienced a true revival and historic distillers have been
producing quality aromatic rums ever since for the export market.
Nose: Like a lovely stroll through spice stalls. Black pepper, cumin, rice,
starchy notes but also some sweetness with salted caramel aromas.
Mouth: Well-rounded and fruity. It then develops aromas of red berries
(strawberries, gooseberries), then evolves to pure cane juice thus evoking
its raw material.
Finish: Surprisingly, despite being nice and easy to begin with, it has quite
a bitter finish, giving it a delicious balance.
