El Supremo Rum 8 Years old

55.00

An exceptional medium bodied dark amber Rum. This 8 year old rum is a complex fusion of a full flavored, heavy bodied rum, creating a sumptuous smooth sipping rum which can also form the basis of memorable cocktails.

  • 70cl / 40% ABV
  • Distilled from the honey of pure handcut sugar cane.
  • Unfiltered, natural without additives or coloring.
  • Traditional distillation in copper still.
  • Double maturation: First aged in Incienso Marron vats, finally finished in French oak barrels.
  • Matured in Asuncion, Paraguay. Bottled in France.

Nose
The initial hit off the nose is warming and redolent. Cloves, cinnamon, candied orange peel and vanilla dominate. A slight lactic tang brings to mind a glazed carrot cake; extremely inviting and homey. The vegetal notes have softened dramatically, and while still present, take a back seat to the wood influence.

Palate
Spicy and dry, with layers of cocoa, caramel and spices. A strong incienso and oak presence. Immediately present are the beginnings of that classic aged Agricole funk, more inviting than challenging, the tastes of mineral and warm rubber evoke images of a race track more than a factory fire. The initial hit then resolves to more carrot cake; this is by no means a sweet rum. This expression is no more richer in mouthfeel, but there is a lot more clarity to the image, the structure is more coherent and flavors more complex.

Finish
Once again a long finish, smooth, clean and but supple. There is an appetizing bitter cocoa note and it goes down like spiced Mexican hot coco, warming but with restraint.

Reminds us of
