Berry Bros & Rudd Dominican Rum 7 Year Old
The Caribbean boasts a long history of rum distilling, a result of historical colonial influences in the region. Each country has its own unique style, which generally falls under one of three categories: English, French or Spanish. The Alcoholes Finos Dominicanos Distillery was founded in the Dominican Republic in 2009. The distillery is surrounded by cane fields and uses locally sourced sugar; it runs on a biomass boiler, with sustainability at the forefront of their approach. Going from strength to strength, this young distillery is one to watch.
Exotic fruit notes evolve alongside the more obvious notes of caramel and vanilla. This is very easy on the palate with some delicate cinnamon spice cutting through the sweetness. The flavour progression is steady, with the body fattening to give a lush and lingering sweet finale.
