SAN FRANCISCO SPIRITS COMPETITION 2020
4 KEY STEPS
A meticulous selection is made of distillates from 2 distinct terroirs in the Caribbean Islands of Barbados and Trinidad.
The intention of the Master Blender is to showcase the typicity of these terroirs in a perfect balance (40% Barbados, 60% Trinidad), thanks to the richness and intensity from the distillation of molasses in pot stills combined with the delicacy and lightness from the sugarcane distillation in columns.
The batches of rums from Trinidad and Barbados are aged for 5 years in their native land in bourbon casks.
They are then matured for 12 months in the Charente, in barrels that have previously contained Cognac, and finally matured for 3 months in barrels that have previously contained Xeres - Pedro Ximenes. As a result of this original maturing process, the rum draws delicate fruity aromas.
The latest creation of the Master Blender, Saison Sherry Cask is a unique rum for which each batch has been carefully selected and then matured with particular attention to obtain a rich, complex, surprising and innovative aromatic profile.
This rum has a generous nose with red fruit fragrances and a hint of delicate woody scents. On the palate it is well balanced, with notes of stewed red fruits and fresh morello cherries which give it a lot of delicacy. Fine hints of spices harmoniously complete this rum. The long finish ends on sweet candied fruit and sherry notes.
