HSE Rhum Extra Vieux Port Finish 2009
After 5 years of ageing in American oak casks in the purest tradition of HSE rhum, this vintage has spent an additional 12 months maturing in 225 and 500 liters Porto casks. This “opus” blends the evocative and subtle notes typical of Porto wine with the characteristic generosity of Martinique old agricultural rum.
The nose opens up onto delicate aromas of freshly roasted cacao beans and jam. When agitated, delightful hints of rare spices enveloped in elegant woody undertones are revealed. The mouth offers a fine and balanced attack with the empyreumatic chocolate notes gradually making way for a generous finish where fig and dark fruit aromas blend in lengthy harmony.
