Compagnie des Indes Rum Boulet de Canon No.10 46% 700ml
For its tenth edition, our Boulet de canon is hitting hard! BOOM! Resulting from the ageing of our usual Boulet de canon blend (Nicaragua and Panama) in Six Quarter casks (quarter casks of a Butt = 125 Litres) from a very famous Islay distillery.
These casks underwent the same smoking process as did the Boulet de canon N°5 casks. Indeed, we sent these 6 casks to be smoked in a Tuyé (Jura Morteau sausage smokehouse) for 2 months before pouring the rum for a 6- month finish in the closed barrels.
Nose: At first honeyed aroma emerges from the glass, then aromas of prunes and currants. It evolves into pine sap, iodine, and candied orange.
Mouth: A franc, woody, and roasted attack. Followed then by iced chestnut and English fudge notes, but also a touch of sweet chillies, mixed with lemongrass.
Finish: It’s deliciously indulgent, with the impression of biting into a chocolate hazelnut spread.
Compagnie des Indes rums are produced with great care and elegance. The idea was brought to life in memory of the former East India Company from the seventeenth and eighteenth century that selected rare commodities from distant continents and imported them to their countries. Like them, we select only the best qualities of rum from all over the world and import these to Europe. No matter if we speak about single casks or carefully selected blends we always focus on bringing out the character and qualities of each local origin. Florent from Compagnie des Indes roams the world constantly and amazes us with his Rum discoveries. One feels he does it for his own pleasure because his selections have in common, elegance, lightness, naturalness, and authenticity. What rum always should have been, but rarely is nowadays, inflated by suspicious aromas and colours.
