Fortin Rum 8 years Paraguay 40% 700ml
This rum 100% sugarcane honey, after fermented, is distilled in column stills and then aged in bourbon casks for 8 years. Nose: slightly marked, elegant with vanilla and butterscotch. Palate: sweet and rich, then it grows on the palate with more spice. On a creamy body, almost fat, there is the dominant caramel vanilla nose. Final: then goes to a great extent on the finish, with raisins, toffee, but also a plant peppermint tip that gives originality. Suave and elegant rum.
The first Spanish conquerors arrived in Paraguay and introduced sugar cane to Guarani Indians; they will soon take ownership to replace their "chicha". Paraguay took over the culture of sugar cane and then produced one of the world's best sugar cane. This exceptional product is grown in an environmentally friendly manner and watered by clear waters that flow naturally in the middle of sand and stones taking care of necessary minerals for good concentration of sugar in the plant. It is the same water that is mixed later in sugar cane honey and gives the spirit of Rum Fortin an incomparable taste. Thanks to its originalsavoir-faire, Javier Diaz de Vivar develops an elegant and refined rum with lots of personality half way between Traditional and Agricole rums. It is a balanced rum, subtle, releasing floral notes, vanilla and honey buttons and finishing with spicy flavours. Rum Fortin comes in 3 years, 8 years and 12 years. The Passion Flower "Mburukuja" is the floral emblem of Paraguay and authenticates the bottle of rum Fortin.
