This is an interesting rum. From Africa and blended with carribean rum. apparently aged in Africa in cognac barrels and bourbon barrels in the Caribbean.

Reminds me of Legent bourbon.

Drinks kind of warm and a little spicy at 43% alcohol.
There's a thick deep molasses undercurrent with some burnt caramel, clove and raisin.

Beautiful heavy bottle. A nice one to have for a collection. Many talking points

The rums is mix of Bajan and Mauritius rums. On the nose, there is a lot of Bajan features, sweet tones of citrus fruits, toffee, vanilla and muted oak. On the palate there is welcoming citrus fruits, oak, butter, demerrara, raisins. The aftertaste is reasonably long, pleasant combination of fruits and oak, going towards dry and bitter (but only so slightly). Overall, the rum entertains me a lot, it is smooth, easygoing, balanced, all the fruity notes scream Caribic (think Barbados and St. Lucia) at me, the nose is wonderful, the white oak and woody tones are present in all aspects (smell, taste and aftertaste), but they are not stealing the show. No sugar added. Nicely done. I am even considering score 9 here.

Der Equiano Rum ist ein Blend aus Mauritius (10y) und Barbados (8y). Die Hochzeit hat in der Foursquare Distillerie statt gefunden. Es wurden keine Zusatzstoffe hinzugefügt. Die Flaschen Anzahl ist limitiert.

Der Rum zeigt in der Nase eine milde süße und eine leicht fruchtige Note. Am Gaumen schmeckt man die natürliche Fass Süße und Aromen von Vanille und Karamell. Trocken und natürlich verwöhnt er bein Trinken mit klassischen unverfälschten Rum Aromen. Etwas Schärfe im Abgang mit einer leichten Holznote harmonieren mit etwas Süße die sich dann aber auch wieder schnell in den Hintergrund begibt.

Für unter 50Euro bekommt man einen limitierten authentischen Rum, welcher einen eigenen Charakter mit bringt und sich von der Masse abhebt. Auch im Design macht der Rum alles richtig. Der Berstein farbende Rum wird würdevoll aufbewahrt und ist ein wahrer hingucker.

Ich kann den Equiano für alle Fans von trockenen Rums, die keine künstliche Süße möchten, empfehlen. Ich kann mir den Rum auch gut für Einsteiger vorstellen. Klare Kaufempfehlung. limitiert!

The Equiano Rum is a blend from Mauritius (10y) and Barbados (8y). The wedding took place in the Foursquare Distillery. No additives have been added. The number of bottles is limited.

The rum shows a mild sweet and a slightly fruity note in the nose. On the palate you can taste the natural barrel sweetness and aromas of vanilla and caramel. Dry and natural, he has classic unadulterated rum flavors. A little sharpness in the finish with a light wood note harmonize with a little sweetness, which then quickly goes into the background again.

For less than 50Euro you get a limited authentic rum, which brings its own character and stands out from the crowd. The rum also does everything right in design. The Bernstein-coloured rum is kept dignified and is a true eye-catcher.

THe Equiano is perfect for all fans of dry rums who don't want artificial sweetness. I can also imagine the rum is good for beginners. Clear purchase recommendation. Try it... it is limited!

Cooperation between Barbados and Mauricius. Savoury, dry taste.

Byl jsem zvědav na tuto kombinaci a za mě super výsledek spolupráce dvou palíren jednak z Mauricia a druhá na Barbadosu. Chuťově moc prijemny rum, kde je cítit v aroma pomeranče a v chuti rovněž pomeranč, karamel a rozinky.

Oh wow! The nose is pretty bland, not a lot to smell there. But the body is nice and full with so many different tastes coming in and out! It's nice and rough, I could taste raisins, oak, some leathery notes. You can feel the age in the finish. If the taste was stronger and the nose was more present and pleasant it could be a ten!

A deep leather color with nice legs. Oak on the nose with subtle hints of vanilla, simple but very nice. Clean palate, simple but elegant. Decent mouth feel, dry finish with some pepper on the back.

Overall a very nice mid range rum. Perfectly suited neat or in high end cocktails, far too nice for simple mixers. 7/10
