Tasty, but not quite great
Epris Distillery 1999
The Rum Cask
Aged 17 Years
Column Still Rum
Country of origin: Brazil
Color: Pale gold
Weak, flowery, fruity and fresh with notes of vanilla and white fruits - pears, peaches, honeydew melon ...
and some honeyed chamomile tea.
Smooth and mild, fruity and slightly sweet.
Tastes like honeydew melons and pears, a little spicy (white pepper), with vanilla, oak and decent herbal aromas.
Medium long, spicy and oaky.
Up to now I did not find a really good rum from Epris Distillery.
Unusual combination of aromas, I don't expected that.
It's bright in the taste like a young rum but there is also a lot of pepper. It's a little bit fruity but also dry like a Panama rum. Pear with pepper and green tea is little bit strange, but very unique. I mean Fiji rum is also strange, but if you get used to Fiji aromas, you can enjoy it.
The aromas are good, but I would prefer more heavy or darker aromas.
A special rum, no question about that.
Smell: vanilla, pear, citrus, green tea, spice, pepper
Taste: pepper, pear, citrus, paper, spice, green tea, some peach, bitterness
Finish: middle long, sweet green tee, pear, citrus, fruity
Value (49€): 3/5
