At Monymusk-Clarendon, fermentation can last as long as a month. The “heavy” rums produced here stand out for their impressive ester content, reaching up to 1,500 grams per hectolitre of pure alcohol. With an ester content of under 60 g/HAP, this version invites us to discover a particularly well-balanced rum in which the wood is perfectly incorporated into the other ingredients of the flavour and aroma palette. For us, it is beautifully classic: praise worthy of only the finest spirits.
The distinguished initial nose is particularly fruity (apricot), creamy (coconut) and vanilla. Allowed to breathe, it becomes exotic (mango), delicately woody and heady (mimosa). The assertive attack is medicinal (camphor) and exotic (guava). A huge number of spices converge on the mid-palate (cardamom, nutmeg). The well-balanced finish invites us to savour fresh fruits (pear, pippin apple). At the end of the palate, a handful of red and black fruits (strawberry, bramble) arrive in a grand finale. The retro-nasal olfaction evokes an American rye whiskey.

Appearance : topaz with orangey copper hues.
Nose : refined, distinguished. The particularly fruity (apricot), creamy (almond, coconut) and vanilla first nose quickly becomes increasingly exotic (mango, persimmon, guava). Allowed to breathe, it releases beautiful woody notes (beeswax, oak stave, praline). A few heady florals (broom, mimosa, carnation) and spices (ginger, cumin, pink peppercorn) wonderfully punctuate the stripped back classicism of the aromatic palette.
Palate : lively, assertive. The attack is medicinal (camphor, ointment) at first. Then, copying the nose, it develops delicious exotic flavours (mango, persimmon, guava). On the mid-palate, spices converge, with star anise, cardamom, curry, cumin and nutmeg. They bring in their wake candied fruits, nuts (date, almond, walnut, apricot, quince, raisin) and citrus fruits (orange, lime). The end of the palate is very herbaceous (chervil, wicker, lovage).
Overall : long, balanced. Completely unexpectedly but with perfect timing, fresh fruits (pear, pippin apple) arrive to bring lots of juiciness to the start of the finish. Some will also be able to pick out red and black fruits (raspberry, strawberry, bramble, blackcurrant). This wonderfully refreshing sequence settles in for the duration. With their velvety and powdered notes (cocoa, ginger), the retro-nasal olfaction and the empty glass act in unison to clearly evoke an American rye whiskey.
