43.5% ABV, 750 ml. distilled at Destilerías Unidas S.A. de Peru
Distilled in column stills at the Destilerías Unidas S.A. de Peru, in the Chicama Valley, an extremely arid region on the Peruvian north coast, this 2004 vintage is first aged 12 years in its terroir of origin and then matured two to three years in France.
It reveals essences of ripe figs, both the fruit and the leaf, and mango, then develops notes of rich pastry, almond and white pepper.
Nose : It starts on caramel, ripe figs both the fruit and the leaf, licorice and molasses. It becomes fruitier with banana, almond and notes that are woody, buttery, minty and smoky.
Palate : Rich and quite woody, it lingers in the nose with notes of cooked apple, lemon, mango and walnut, at the same time it is spicier with hints of white pepper, vanilla and nutmeg.
"This elegant, crisp, sipping rum completely envelops the taster with a refined nose and mouthfull of toasted oak barrel, dried tobacco leaves, ripe banana flesh, golden bitter honey, fresh banana leaves, caramelized nuts, vanilla extract, whole cinnamon, star anise and a floral finish that lingers on the palate." 93 Points 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
