Gold of Mauritius Dark Rum is produced from molasses which is aged for 3 months in port wine barrels before being filtered, followed by another 8-12 months.
The Gold of Mauritius Dark Rum molasses is supplied by Grays Distillery, a wine, sprits and liqueur producer founded in 1935 in Mauritius that makes 6 million litres of alcohol each year.
Recommendable to most
Nose: fruity, maybe banana, but rather shy and thin
Palate: nice, pretty soft, silky and slightly smoky. With hints of port wine. Untypical and rather sweet.
Sugar: 30 g/l
Mauritius offers also other interresting rums, even pretty nice agricoles (Chamarel for example)
La couleur sombre de ce Gold of Mauritius Dark Rum dissimule de précieux arômes, qu’il ne tiendra qu’à vous de découvrir lors d’une dégustation.
Ainsi vous reconnaîtrez, au nez, des parfums de vanille Bourbon, de café et d’élégantes senteurs boisées. La bouche, quant à elle, est suave et offre des saveurs de noix grillées, et de charmantes notes florales et de fruits rouges. La finale, légère, est tout aussi convaincante.
Un rhum qui porte en lui toute la douceur de vivre de son île d’origine, et qui saura vous la communiquer en l’espace de quelques gorgées !
This bottle opens up with a very characteristic nose consisting of slightly earthy portwine, honney, almond splits, butter, vanilla pudding and refined sugar.
As the aroma indicates, the taste is also very, very sweet, firstly with notes reminding me of pineapple and red berries, then evolving into more earthy notes of burnt tobacco leaves (think ashtray) and perhaps a bit of wood.
The finish is somewhat buttery but dissapears very quickly. This feels like drinking a ton of additives.
Tasted it after a 7y Havana and surely there is a difference but still not the wow effect. Smokey cigars aroma, smooth taste, reminds me of a Scottish whiskey I drank some time ago. Sorry for my rookie review, this is what I think. Expected a bit more reading the ratings.
I found this rum to be solid but unspectacular. It doesn't taste bad or anything, it just doesn't have that much character. I find this one to taste a bit better on ice rather than neat although where this rum truly shines is with Ginger beer/ale! I have to say though, that the box and bottle for this are excellent!
"The taste is predominantly a very deep char which gives a sweet and sour type mouthfeel – again very similar to a Bourbon Whiskey."
