New Grove Old Tradition – 5 yo rum

New-Grove-Old-Tradition-5-Years

 

The Rum: New Grove Old Tradition – 40 abv

Origin: Mauritius

 

Distilled: n.i.

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.
