New Grove Old Tradition – 5 yo rum
The Rum: New Grove Old Tradition – 40 abv
Bottled: ca 2012
Nose: Now this is a yummie nose, full of tropical fruits (mostly green banana), with a slight metallic touch.
Taste: full with juicy molasses; and again this great tropical fruitiness – this time more towards passion fruit.
Finish: well balanced, soft-sweet with a nice bitter wood influence. Medium long finish that repeats the fruitiness from the taste.
Our Score: 16.5/20
Remarks: by far my best New Grove so far. A blend of rums of 5 years old minimum. This rum was let to rest for five years in Limousin French oak and in Port barrels.
