We beloved the unique Equiano, a darkish rum made in Mauritius, aged in Cognac barrels, and blended with Foursquare rum from Barbados, so hopes are excessive for this primary line extension from the model: a light-weight rum that’s made in mainly the reverse approach.

Equiano Gentle begins with pot-distilled molasses rum from Barbados’s Foursquare, aged in bourbon barrels for no less than three years, then blended with column-distilled, unaged rum created from contemporary sugarcane juice in Mauritius, Africa.

The ensuing rum could be very mild in coloration, gently golden in hue — mild however actually not white. Fairly and floral on the nostril, the combo of conventional molasses and agricole-style rum is clear, sprinkling in notes of caramel sauce, vanilla, a little bit of barrel char atop the lightest aroma of racy petrol. The palate picks up from there, pouring on a fruity character that evokes notes of baked apple, coconut, and extra vanilla — extra like comfortable serve ice cream right here. A touch of cinnamon creeps in on the end, which is shiny and reasonably candy, virtually like a churro at instances — although that imprecise, column nonetheless industrial observe at all times manages to creep in across the edges because the spirit fades out.

That is an simply approachable but wholly complicated rum that works simply positive by itself however looks as if simply in regards to the excellent “close to” white rum to be used in your favourite cocktail. Daiquiris, right here we come.

86 proof.
