The Cognac makers have gone rogue. 

Rum made by a family of Cognac makers may strike you as an odd release but this is no ordinary Cognac family. Jérôme and Lilian are the fourth generation of master distillers from the Tessendier family. Widely regarded as masters in Cognac since the family established production in 1880, this really is an exciting newcomer to the world of Rum. Jérôme and Lilian’s expertise allow them to blend over 300 different varieties of Cognac into their products every single year so it’s safe to say they deserve a chance to experiment with a different Spirit.

Saison or Season Rum brings together varieties of Rum from three locations: Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad. By focusing on the unique benefits of the Rum created by each region and storing the product in Cognac barrels for a final 9-12 months, this really is a Rum with a few stories to tell. The balanced caramel and coconut notes of Barbados work alongside the more exotic, fruit flavors of Jamaica, while the lightness of Trinidad Rum brings everything together. Despite being their first Rum, The Tessendiers have not been willing to play safe and this could quite soon be a Rum that everybody is talking about.

What does Saison Rum taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Saison Rum and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses; the sweet and syrupy residue left behind after sugar crystals are extracted from sugar cane juice. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, which can contribute to the final flavour.

Meh. Would be a good description. Nothing stands out.
 
Mikel
Mikel,
Would be better if a tad higher alcohol percentage and a tad older. It is a rather lightweight sweetness to it that is still enjoyable.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Smooth up front, with a lingering bitterness. Sweet. I get more of the caramel than the fruits. Easy to sip.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, dark rum with an exotic birth; while a nutty & sweet life; leads to a fruity death of medium length.

Very nice. Has a fruity sweet that is nicely refreshing from the sugar sweet you usually taste.
