Port Wine Divine.


Mauritius has miles of sugar cane fields. It has vanilla and pineapples and lychees. It had the dodo bird, its national symbol, until that was hunted to extinction in the 17th century. And it has Rum. In fact, Mauritius recently became one of the few places in the World to produce two types of Rum, both molasses and agricole. Until 2006 there was a prohibition on the production of agricole – Rum made from sugar cane juice – as the island was so heavily reliant on its sugar-refining industry, but with the lifting of that ban came a minor explosion of the product and Mauritius is now setting out its stall as a global provider of Rum. Among them is Gold of Mauritius Rum and the craft team behind it, led by Frederic Bestel.
 
Gold of Mauritius Dark Rum is made with molasses, held in Port wine barrels for three months before going through filtration and adjustment then spending a further eight to 12 months in barrels. Due to its ageing process, there's some sediment in the bottles, similar to what happens with wine.

Rum used to be accepted as form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Having been lucky enough to travel to Mauritius for my honeymoon I made it my personal side mission to try as many Mauritian rums as possible. Without doubt, this was my favourite and came home with me on the plane. I think my wife is still there? Deliciously smooth, and well balanced well worth a try.

Great one!

Jonas,
This is a young, intencsive and jumpy rum suitable well as a substitute to a Highland malt.
Andrew
Andrew,
Nice, smooth Rum with a sweet, chocolatey palate. Velvety smooth, peppery punch for a finish. Great rum and I don't usually go for a neat dram of the stuff.

Not sure why I'm getting rum. I don't like this type of alcohol. Best served by not.

Too sugary, not enough depth

Jon,
Simply the best rum I have ever tasted! I received the sample in one of the tasting packs and had to buy 2 bottles immediately. Sadly, those are now gone and I can't find this rum anywhere. I'm waiting very patiently for Uncle Flaviar to re-stock :)
Onni
Onni,
Excellent and really smooth rum. I think it might even be smoother than Ron Zacapa, my another favorite. I really like the base of this rum and I enjoy it straight.
