RUM NATION Jamaica White Pot Still
Rum, Jamaica, 70cl, Ref: 18953
Renowned for its old rums, with the oldest bottled under the label ‘supreme lord’, the Rossi & Rossi Italian importers and exporters bring us the opportunity to sample their first white rum. The latter is made by the small Jamaican Worthy Park distillery located in the village of Saint Catherine. When asked what makes his white rum different from others, Fabio Rossi replies: “Personality, personality, and yet more personality!”
Profile: creamy, floral. Intensely spicy (curry powder, cinnamon, chilli), exotic (flambéed banana) and floral (gardenia, geranium) notes. Light aromas of liquorice followed by truffles.

- Appearance : colourless.
- Nose : both creamy and solid. Intense spice (curry powder, cinnamon) and chilli (paprika) clear the way for subtle notes of tar and liquorice. It becomes increasingly floral (gardenia, geranium) and exotic (flambéed banana). Particularly original, it develops aromas of truffles and dark chocolate.
- Palate : greasy, oily. The opening notes of sugar cane are particularly intense. Then, as with the nose, the mid-palate reveals itself to be floral (withered roses, peony). Its silky-smooth texture is evocative of melted artichokes while notes of balm herb and benzoin add a medicinal twist.
- Overall : long, silky. It initially emerges vegetal, fibrous (sugar cane), medicinal and spicy (nutmeg, curry powder). It develops notes of Russian leather and marzipan. The retronasal olfaction is lemony and dessert-like (rum baba). Once empty, the glass is milky (coconut, almond) and chocolatey.
- The brand
The Rum Nation range is the result of years of research and tasting. Launched in 1999, this range has a distinctly Latino style with rums from unusual countries such as Panama and Guatemala. Each release is carefully bottled at between 40 and 45% ABV, to combine balance, mellowness, texture and flavour. Fabio Rossi wanted to introduce fine spirits enthusiasts to new products from the Caribbean and Latin America, and was one of the first to explore the rums of Peru and Panama. The product of a three-hundred-year-old tradition, each rum has a flavour and a personality that offers a unique expression of its region and origins.

Laphroaig 10 year old is undoubtedly one of the all time great malt whiskies from Scotland. Its idiosyncratic peaty character stands out...€46.00
