Cannes Royale Extra Old Rum
The Cannes Royale Extra Aged is a beautiful and complex sipping Rum created at the Eastern Caribbean Rum Company — established in 1998. This lovely Rum was made with Rums aged for up to eight years in toasted oak barrels. The Rums utilized in this blend have been created in both pot and column stills. Both molasses based Rum and cane juice Rums were also used. The result is a complex and extremely attractive Rum with pristine flavors and a natural color.
In 1998 Eeron Redhead started the Eastern Caribbean Rum Company in Grenada. He had come from a proud Grenada family with a rich Rum tradition started by his uncle Joe who had worked in Grenada's LaSagesse Estate. Eeron was raised in New York but the call of the small island of Grenada and Rum was too strong to resist. He is now a master Rum blender and among his Rum creations his Cannes Royale Extra Old Rum is his top bottling. His production is small but the standards and of course the quality of the final product are high. We expect more great things from the Eastern Caribbean Rum Company.
Brilliant, deep golden/copper color. The nose is filled with the scents of dried fruits with caramel, toffee, and brown butter with generous brown baking spices, oak, and toasted walnuts. The palate echoes the nose delivering a rich and surprisingly vibrant fruit and caramel centric core with flanking notes of spice, toffee, oak, and butterscotch. Medium-bodied with rich and complex flavors while being perfectly proportioned and ideally balanced with a bright dose of acidity.
