RHUM RHUM Libération 2015 Full Proof 58,4%
Rum, France / Marie Galante, 70cl, Ref: 19403
“Liberated” from its cask in 2015 after six years of maturation in a tropical climate, Rhum Rhum Libération 2015 Full Proof is a higher strength version of its sibling ‘High Proof ’. At 58.4°, no water has been added before bottling, making it the “unabridged”, cask strength version of this rum. Aged in barrels from a famous château in Sauternes, it has surprising power and richness, remaining clearly marked by woody notes of sugar cane and very ripe fruit.
Profile: powerful, complex and progressive. A journey from fruit to sugar cane. Oak notes

- Appearance : intense gold with mahogany hues.
- Nose : invigorating and aromatic, the tempo of the initial nose is provided by oak and hot rubber. Generous notes of flambé banana and cashew nuts underscored by a wonderful sweetness, clearly showcase the Sauternes cask maturation. Wood influences throughout with a hint of mahogany and dried hay.
- Palate : powerful and virtuoso. On the palate, plantain banana plays the role of conductor, setting the rhythm for the other fruits (apricot, apple). Progressive and complex, taste buds are submerged in flavours that develop into freshly crushed cane.
- Overall : Very long and pleasing. From sugar cane juice to sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), this Full Proof edition is a true hymn to Marie-Galante rum.
- The brand
In 2004, Luca Gargano took Gianni Capovilla to Marie-Galante to convince him to produce “the best agricultural rum in the world”. An undisputed master of eau de vie, Gianni Capovilla accepted the challenge and installed a still in the Bielle distillery in 2005 and the Rhumrhum company was born. A second still was installed in 2007. In 2008, the first bottle of Rhumrhum PMG Rhum Agricole Blanc was put on the market. From its past as a sugar-producing island, Marie-Galante grows varieties of cane that had once disappeared, which is used to produce Rhumrhum.
