Aged for 18 months in oak barrels, this Mauritian gold rum from the Rhumerie de Chamarel is made from pure cane juice, using sugar cane grown in the fields surrounding the distillery. The quality of this cane, its careful selection and ensuring it reaches the mill as soon as possible after being hand picked each day are of the very highest priority to Chamarel. The reward for their diligence is a vibrant rum with a strong vanilla character. If you like Rhum Agricole, add 3 points. Otherwise its way too dry rum to be enjoyable.
