The Rum: New Grove Old Tradition 8 yo

Origin: Mauritius

Distilled : not indicated

Bottled: 2013

 

Nose: Starts soft and a bit vegetal, with some soury aromas too. Needs some time to get more pleasant and rounder. Brown sugar and grapefruit now.  Also some exotic fruits: mango!  A rather strange nose that goes in all directions without being very consistent. But still pleasant, no offnotes.

Taste: starts rather bitter, with nice wood. Tonic. After a good 10 minutes more fruity and floral notes. Sweets and raspberry. Mango and passion fruit

Finish: medium long, with again nice wood, ending with some violets.

 

Our score : not bad, but definitely not my favourite New Grove. ***
