Don’t call me agricultural. Let us openly declare: we’re irreverent, we like to be a bit controversial… like the Woody Allen of rums. We blend a non-agricultural rum from Guadeloupe with an agricultural Barbados spirit, creating a semi-agricultural rarity. A Greek god with an agricultural head and a non-agricultural body, if you like, bedecked in fine attire with scythe in hand. A peasant at the ball…. Our greatest, fondest fans will understand us. As for new ones?… they’ll learn how to. After careful tasting, we isolated four dimensions around which this blend takes shape: Power, Elegance, Character and Softness. Spicy and marine tones linger at length but leave room for the elegant blackberries and sour cherries of an uncontaminated forest floor. On the palate, mineral elements laced with a balsamic hint. Overall, it’s exquisitely soft and pleasant. “If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative.” Woody Allen
Presenting the new star of our stables. A blend that reflects all the experience gained in recent years. A multi-faceted spirit that sums up the amazing variety of Caribbean character traits. The Caribbean: a garden of Eden that’s a recurring element in the dreams of all those who yearn to escape, to go find themselves.
The soul of rum is that Spanish gold that gradually reached the remotest corners of Patagonia, setting off from Hispaniola on 12th October 1492. This was the start of a tremendous to and fro of missionaries, monks, conquerors, pirates, cadets of all sorts and more besides; bringing passion, a longing for redemption and a desire to succeed, all compelled to leave the old world behind and start anew. We’ve all imagined (or will imagine) at some point, climbing aboard a caravel, a sailing ship or a transatlantic liner to sail west on the ocean waves. Enlivened by this “nuevo” sentiment, we resolved to create a Spanish style blend, with the burning passion of the tales of Don Quixote and the raucousness of Pamplona during the festival. The opulently scented bouquet is dominated by hints of tropical plants and fruits. The first whiff on the nose brings an immediate, powerful punch of molasses. The glass then gradually reveals a powerful body, with good structure propped up by a round, enveloping flavour. The aromatic finish veers towards scents of tobacco, vanilla and liquorice. “Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
My song is the final farewell of a nostalgic heart! I will sing my gypsy song! Powerful, elegant and majestic. Like the power of opera… A rum with an imperial, aristocratic rhythm, we might say: majestic. Full of complete, complex balance. The Spanish style has always been looked down upon as inferior in quality. At this third bottling, we wait with baited breath, along with you, eager to discover the changes ahead together. A lively, profound rum with plenty of personality. Balsamic and mineral scents hit the nose straight away, preparing us for an explosion of dried fruit, cocoa and cornmeal on the palate. The biggest star is certainly coconut, which whisks us off to a boat in the Caribbean, sipping a cocktail. The rich, aromatic finish changes direction, veering towards fresh tobacco, vanilla and liquorice. Remarkably clean on the palate.
