The paradise on Earth some call Mauritius is home to six Rum makers and is one of the few realms that still offers the entire array of styles: traditional, agricole, light, dark, spiced, et cetera. With Turquoise Bay Amber Rum, the creators have distilled the essence of the terroir: sweetness and spiciness in a wonderful tropical dance that evokes images of palms, sand and sunsets.
It’s a unique and unusual expression starting off as a traditional Rum, made from molasses. But that’s where its traditionality ends. The Spirit is joined by a dash of Rhum Agricole that comes from freshly squeezed sugar cane juice, the Caribbean way. The invigorated amber blend is then finished in ex-Cognac barrels, adding sophistication and subtlety. An extremely sumptuous expression from Isle of Moris, perfect for summer afternoons, evenings and nights.
This rum has a lovely harmony between sweetness and spiciness with notes of toffee, raisins, honey and caramel.
