Family business, which own also hotels, quintas on the Portuguese island Madeira. Since some years it has been pushing their marketing, selling the white and gold rum at many stores on the mainland including tax free at the airports of Lisbon and Porto (and I assume Faro too).

Aguardente de cana is how the Portuguese call rum, and in the previous bottle versions, the naming of rum was secondary. Now RUM is placed prominent on the lable - makes it less 'exotic' or niche for me, new design gives me a feel a cheap bulk rum bottle.

It's a agricole rum, aged 3 years in French oak. Surprised of the vanilla tones, though with some chemical nose finish. For an agricole smooth in the mouth, not that much oak power, though a few drops of water made it to a six score here. Prefer to use this rum in a cocktail, then sipping.

Forget your typical rum flavours and enjoy. Ok, there is some oak and vanilla on the nose but there is also a herbal scent and a reminder of juniper. Light and delicate scents.
On the palate there are hints of (non-sweet) apricots and prunes, the oak becomes a bit more prominent as do the juniper/herbal notes. Drinks more like an eau-de-vie than like your average rum.
Light, fruity and herbal with a little oak to give it some backbone this is a well balanced sipper for tropical nights. Not the rum you want after surviving a november hailstorm , this is summer in your glass.
Really enjoyable and considering its age, smooth enough; I like!!

This rum leverages from intense sugar cane aroma combined with barrels from local wine. It's a bit sweeter with tones of port/madeira wine. Burn is bit more delicate than from other local rums.

Agricole from Portugal - not much body and short aftertaste. Fruity notes and strong flavor.

Madeira má v tomto smere naozaj sklamala. Rum,ktorý dozrieval vo FR sudoch má skutočne bledú farbu,nevýraznú vôňu a chuť to tiež nezachránila.

nez assez léger, plutôt agréable.
Première gorgée pas trop agressive, légère note de banane
Seconde gorgée plus profonde et là ... submergé par l'amertume.

Very aromatic, nose is quite sweet and grassy. It is agricole style after all.
The taste is unfortunately dry and very hot.

Nose: riped fruits and some hints of wooden barrels
Palate: short and young, maybe too young...not much volume, not much body
