MEZAN BELIZE 2008 70CL

Celebrated for its golden sun, turquoise waters and gently swaying palm trees, the Caribbean is also home to one of the world’s oldest and most beloved spirits: RUM For centuries, rum production has flourished among this myriad of islands and countries, creating a rich and nuanced palette of aromas and styles unique to each location and distillery.
Meticulously selected by their cellar master, Mezan rums capture the depth and diversity of the Caribbean and offer the taste of its purest, most authentic flavours. Distilleries old and new, some founded centuries ago, others no longer in operation: all subject to his discerning eye. He tirelessly travels throughout the region, seeking out its hidden treasures: untouched rums, artfully crafted from a single year’s distillation by a single distillery. Unsweetened, uncoloured and only lightly filtered, these vintage rums represent the finest, truest expression of their producer and country of origin.

Description

Soft complex, very sippable with a very long finish.

This delightful drop comes from Belize, a country formerly known as British Honduras, on the eastern coastline of Central America, sandwiched between Guatemala and Mexico. It’s made from molasses from a single harvest, fermented using wild yeasts and distilled in a column still. The spirit is then aged in ex-Bourbon barrels, six years in the heat of Belize where it ages quickly, and then four years in the cold of Europe where it ages more slowly. It is non-chill-filtered and no colour, sugar or other flavourings have been added. It all adds up to a seriously sophisticated rum. The distillery is situated in Belmopan. Molasses comes from locally crushed sugar cane. It is naturally fermented and then distilled in a triple column continuous still. This vintage was initially aged in Belize in heavy-char American Bourbon barrels, before being re-barrelled in used white-oak Bourbon casks that had previously been filled with other Caribbean rums.

Tasting notes Nose: Perfumed notes of oak, cedar and vanilla followed by tropical fruit, hazelnuts and burnt butter. Palate: Big sweet and spicy flavours, softer sherried butterscotch notes with exotic expressive tones. Finish: Soft, complex, very sippable with a very long finish.
