Copalli White rum

Copalli White

Belize | Light | 40% ABV

Copalli Rum is an agricole style, organic, sustainably made, single estate rum from the heart of the rainforest in Southern Belize. Made with only three ingredients (Fresh Pressed Sugar Cane juice, yeast, and canopy water from the rainforest), there is no added sugar, artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. 100% of the organic, hand cut sugarcane is grown and harvested within two miles of its distillery which allows it to be delivered, shredded, and pressed within two hours of being cut.

I noticed Copalli being used at several tiki (and non-tiki) bars on a recent trip to California. This is very different from standard white rums (it’s distilled from sugar cane juice) and it’s fantastic in a Mai-tai! If you’ve never had an Agricole style rum before, this is definitely an accessible choice….it’s not what people expect in a frozen daiquiri or mojito, but for any more rum-forward cocktails it may be exactly what you’re looking for. I will be buying this again.

42%abv organic agricole style rum, blend of pot and column still distillate, rested in steel tanks before bottling, proofed with "canopy water"
Nosing: really fruity and strong for 42% im sure thats the pot still influence, lime zest, some almond, grass ofc, lots interesting leafy and herbal aromas(bit clairin like but not so intense), quite fresh and green nose
Taste: Quite smooth and mellow at first then lots of grassiness on the first taste, fruit, bitter lime, lots of yeasty herbal leafiness, quite peppery and dry when it goes down.
After a while it leaves a bit acidic citrus taste to your mouth.
Overall very well excecuted organic white agricole.
It is lot more flavorful than the low proof might make you think.
Unique product that showcases its origin and terroir in a great way while still being traditional enough to satisfy most agricole fans.
And if you feel that clairin is too intense for you, this has similar yeasty herbal flavors but lot more gentler in the palate.

If I lived daquiris I would like this more. Mixer only.

Al naso è delicato e profumato con canna, vegetale, zucchero bruciato, agrumi e anche ananas maturo.
Al palato è leggerissimo con una fine dolcezza, un po' d'agrume, ananas/banana, medicinali, qualche nota vegetale lontana. Finale inesistente, troppa diluizione.

This is made from cane juice so it has a very distinctive taste that not everyone will enjoy but I think if you give it a chance you’ll like it.

On the nose it has a strong veggie smell but also fruity with hints of pepper as well. The first taste is very grassy but also some nice bananas thrown in.

I enjoyed this one.

I'm not a huge Agricole guy but this is pretty nice. Blunt force trauma from the banana wrapped in fresh mowed lawn that hits you on the first sip. Similar on the nose. Has a subtle white rum burn but no real harshness. A surprisingly agile sipper for a young white run and equally nice to add depth to cocktails

Superbly crafted but does not really deliver the grassy notes I crave.

This is a great value sugar cane juice rum in the vein of rhum agricole and cachaça, very clean and palatable with all the standard hallmarks of a vegetal white rum. A fine stand-in with cocktails calling for unaged agricoles, a decent caipirinha base and not a bad ti’punch… although, I’d recommend you try sticking to 100 proof or higher for that particular cocktail.

Comparable to St. James blanc 40°.

Very much has a junior clairin vibe. Smell is pretty restrained by clairin/agricole standards - that 42% noticeably dilutes the experience from the typical 50% plus of the others.
Smell has some of that pot still weird funk, only mild and integrated.
Taste has some of the fruit flavours of agricole plus a bit of pot still funk. It's not complex, but very approachable, and I can imagine this being much more palatable neat than most white rums..

So why the low mark? I bought this for cocktails, and I like a rum to really punch through. Put this in a Hurricane and the rum is barely discernible. For the money, I prefer HSE blanc, and all the flavours that brings to the party.

It turns out there are no cut price clairins it seems. Go bold or go home ( or by an agricole and go sideways!).

Edit. Mixing this 50/50 with Wray & Nephew really lifts both in a cocktail. I'd say mixed together it's a 7. The combo has more flavour than the Copalli alone, and less of the column still roughness of the W&N alone. Might have found the cut price clairin after all!
