Deadhead Tasting Notes

Posted: May 7, 2016 in Mexico, Rum

Deadhead 6 year old Rum ‘Arutum Trophy Tsanta’ 40%

Made from sugar cane and molasses in Veracruz (Gulf of Mexico). Double pot still distilled and aged in European oak solera.

Tasted: Feb 2016

Quite a smoky nose with herbal spirit and mentholated agricole notes. Underneath the molasses mingle with hints of dried fruit, wood spice, coconut and grainy oak.

Soft and easy going on the palate, which shows more molasses character, but touch of agricol herbalness comes through. Lightly oaked and a little drying on the finish but pleasantly, softly spiced with lingering vanilla.
