Ron Colón Salvadoreno Red Banana Rum 70cl
About the Bottle.
Ron Colón Salvadoreño Red Banana Oleo Rum came about after the folks at Ron Colón Salvadoreño saw red banana trees acting as shade crops on a coffee farm in El Salvador, and after drinking a cocktail that used banana skin 'oleo saccharum' - which is a neat technique where fruit rinds are coated in sugar to extract flavourful oils and create a turbo-charged flavoured syrup. Here, red banana peels are used along with sugarcane syrup to flavour the rum, and this should make some delicious banana cocktails.
Rum blend and banana collide beautifully in this intersection of tastes with a tropical bouquet up front and roasted cacao on your palate followed by fresh and caramelised banana and a final touch of heat and pot still funk
