Rum Nation Barbados 8 years old distilled 2002 and bottled in 2010.
Appearance: Warm amber with orange nuances.
Nose: Very estery, with intense notes of cola, chinotto, coffee and bitter chocolate. A fresh and very delicate mint fragrance can be found.
Palate: Sweet, fresh, slightly grassy. The moderate sweetness is underlined by coffee and chocolate, and a touch of cloves. Very pleasant, never challenging.
Finish: Slightly peppery, always quite sweet and enriched by the chinotto notes.
Comment: A young rum: sweet, fresh and sunny. Its pleasant aromas, average complexity and the complete absence of sharpness or of a cloying wood influence make it a perfect choice for easy drinking... straight or in the preparation of a fine cocktail.
