A terrific molasses-based Mauritian rum, Green Island is packed with flavour, which is no surprise when you consider that this is actually blended using 3-5yo rums. The golden colour of the aged rum is removed via charcoal filtration, which also gives the rum its creamy texture. Yummy!
A Mauritian rum blended with vanilla, nutmeg and other tropical spices, and named after the rare Pink Pigeon - another native of Mauritius, brought close to extinction in the 90s but now flapping around again in much healthier numbers.
A spiced rum from St Aubin on the island of Mauritius, made using just rum, cane syrup and natural spices. Different to most spiced rums as the base spirit is an agricole, made from sugar cane juice rather than molasses.
A handcrafted, small batch rum, distilled three times at low temperatures from molasses in pot stills for an emphasis on fruitiness in the spirit. It's then matured for three months in oak, slowly allowing the flavour to develop while minimising the potentially overpowering influence of the wood. And after all of that, it's also the first rum to be distilled by Zuidam at their distillery in the Netherlands.
VXO is an excellent 7yo Golden Demerara rum from Guyana, bottled by Banks DIH. We were very impressed with this when we first tasted it at Rumfest, and we still love it - probably the best value rum of its kind.
Cana Brava Rum hails from the Las Cabras distillery in Panama. Aged for 18-24 months in virgin American oak and then finished in first-fill American whiskey barrels (from both Kentucky and Tennessee) for a further one to two years. A fresh rum with hints of coffee and chocolate.
