Equiano Rum


ABV: 43%
Pack Size: 6 x 70cl
Country of Origin: Barbados

Production:

Equiano’s distinct liquid starts at emerging new world producers Gray’s Distillery in Mauritius, where 100% pure rum matures in ex-cognac casks for a minimum of 10 years. Blended with award-winning ex-bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Rich, notes of dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas combine with sweet toffee, butterscotch and caramel culminating with a suggestion of orange peel, vanilla and buttered wood. 

Taste: It has a warm toffee and butterscotch mouth-feel, with chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours that emerge from the liquid as it caresses your tongue.

Finish: Although Equiano is a naturally sweet rum with no added sugar or spices, it has a medium to sweet ending with touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper with a hint of bitter orange peel.
