Rum Nation Jamaica White Pot Still
Appearance: Shiny and crystal clear.
Nose: Incredible aromatic impact from the esters due to the long and slow fermentation: glue, green bananas, wood polish, and a slightly sour note.
Palate: Intense, explosive, but not sharp. Like the nose, but sweeter. Notes of pepper, green olives, and then it turns vegetal: aromatic herbs, palm leaves, freshly sawed wood.
Finish: Persistent, almost endless. It retains notes of glue and green vegetables, with a suggestion of smoke, grappa and tequila.
Comment: A new entry for Rum Nation, a mind-blowingly intense and characterful rum, capable of bringing personality to every cocktail but also delicious for sipping.
Suggested Match: Valrhona Caraibe 66%, a dark and intense but velvety chocolate from the Caribbean, the same area of origin of the rum.
