In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, deep golden/copper color.

Aromatics

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.

Flavor

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.

Intensity & Texture

Medium-bodied with rich and complex flavors while being perfectly proportioned and ideally balanced with a bright dose of acidity.

Cool Factor

A

We love complex aged Rums when a beautiful spirit is mellowed and enhanced over time in wood.

Value Grade

B+

At $30 a bottle this aged Rum is priced on par with Rums of comparable age and quality and an absolute bargain when taken in context of all brown, aged, sipping spirits.

Analysis

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.

How to Enjoy

Enjoy in your favorite Rum cocktails — we like our Aged Rum Sidecar — or sip neat.
