A delicious Fair Trade and Organic rum from the Radermacher distillery, who have been distilling for nearly 200 years in Belgium.
Made from a distillate of fresh, organic sugar cane juice, produced in Paraguay, this is a wonderful rum produced in the Agricole style.
The rum has been matured in Limousin oak casks that have previously held Lambertus single grain whisky, also produced by Radermacher. 1836 Rum also undergoes a finishing process in New American oak casks, adding a little brightness and spice.
Interestingly, the rum is filtered through fair trade Cocoa Nibs, a method of production inspired by the Lincoln County process.
The result is a well rounded and vibrant rum, with notes of fresh grassy cane, lime rind, pineapple, banana, mango, bitter chocolate, a touch of bright grain, espresso, cedarwood, nutmeg, allspice and ginger. The filtration process has given this rum a velvet mouthfeel.
A surprising and well made rum that serves up tonnes of complexity.
