Compagnie Des Indes Boulet de Canon No.8 Rum 70cl
Boulet de Canon N°8 is good on its promise with its smoky, slightly peated notes. This rum is a blend from Nicaragua & Panama mostly 3 to 5 years old with a touch of 8 year old rum. This South American Ron is rich and full-bodied, it was finished 12 months in casks that previously held peated Islay Whiskies.
Type of Rum: Peated
Nose: Fruity and smoky, vegetal aromas filter from the glass. It reminds
one of an autumn walk through the forest: moss on the tree trunks,
comforting aromas of burning wood in the fireplaces, fragrant ferns and
wet straw bales in the fields. Fruity notes with medlar and persimmon,
also evoke that time of year.
Taste: It has a vegetal side with thyme, cress and a charming rooty notes
(gentian, ginseng). Then there are coffee ground aromas with a
pronounced bitterness and smokiness, clove, paprika and matured meat.
Finish: Appealing smoky and toasted notes, liquorice, toasted almonds,
it’s both bitter and tense with its coffee ground aromas.
