This rum is made from freshly pressed sugar cane juice from Madeira island. It is distilled by the Engenho Novo do Madeira distillery using a continuous still (copper column) which was refurbished when the distillery was reopened in 2006. The William Hinton family and the associated distillery can look back to a century+ history of sugar & rum production. Local aging of 6 years using a variety of oak barrels, especially French oak. Nosing reveals very fruity aroma of raisins, brown sugar and figs. Palate starts smoothly, then turning into vegetal notes together with flavor of wood and nuts. Dry and fruity finish. Overall the palate clearly reveals that this is an Agricole style rum but I experienced it as much sweeter and less spicy compared e.g. to a VSOP or XO rhum from Martinique. As such this rum might be interesting especially for those used to (sweeter) molasse based rums and who are looking for an entry point into the world of agricole styled rums. Real grade is 7.5-8.0, have included it therefore in the 8-grade cluster.

Oaky agricole style of rum with grass and silty flavours in the back and wood and ripe tropical fruit in front of the palate

Le meilleur des trois rhum William Hinton. Dispendieux pour un six ans seulement. Finale boisée et alcoolisée.

Rum tasting in Minsk Belarus continued with William Hinton 6y Rum. Very nice bottle and label design. Golden color. Strong vanilla and Madeira flavors to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end.
