TOWT rum- Grayhound cuvee - 50cL
The story of this unique barrel differs from TOWT's other single cask rums. He embarked for 6 months, in 2017, aboard the Brittish lugger "Grayhound" sailing according to a changing weather and currents sometimes facing the wind. She survived, like the Phoenix, the fire that struck us on the 15th of November. Bottled shortly after the disaster, it is unique. After 6 months at sea, she is "Grayhound" and out of the flames of Hell, she is "Phoenix". For both reasons, its notes are surprisingly long in mouth, very rounded, iodized, almost rancio, while keeping a freshness and a fruity reminiscent of cane and vanilla flower.
In addition to 5 years of tropical aging, within the best rum distillery of the island, this limited edition TOWT's rum is the result of aging at sea for 6 months aboard the Grayhound, replica of an English lugger of the 17th century. The rum coming from this special cuvee is less strong, sweeter and smooter.
What if the sea became a new terroir of French rum? Or improvised itself as a cellar of a new kind for spirits aging?
Aging at sea is bold, in a contemporary and exploratory approach of the rum. The iodized air, the winds, the currents, the swell and the agitated waves are factors that can make a rum of a new taste arises.
It is cut at 40 ° with water from the "Monts d'Arrée" (Britanny) and bottled in the French Cornwall. Each bottle is numbered and contains the number of the barrel that contained it, as well as its date of bottling.
Thanks you to Patrice Pellerin for the drawing on the label.
