Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Held to the light, the rum reveals a dark, chestnut color, verging on mahogany. The texture is opulent, with slow, languorous legs that slide down the glass, foretelling its rich viscosity.
A complex and intoxicating aroma wafts forth as you approach the glass, characterized by notes of candied fruit, toasted oak, and aged leather. A subtler layer of spice, featuring cloves and nutmeg, adds further nuance.
From the initial sip, this rum delivers a powerful yet well-balanced array of flavors. A core of molasses and dark brown sugar unfolds into a symphony of tropical fruits like mango, papaya, and dried pineapple. This vibrant fruitiness is accented by earthier notes of tobacco leaf, teak, and old leather, all tinged by the unmistakable essence of long-aged sugarcane juice.
The finish is enduring, with the spicy, woody characteristics remaining on the palate for an impressive length of time. Each flavor note finds its resolution, leaving an aftertaste that is warm, complex, and remarkably satisfying.
Isautier's 16 Year Sugarcane Rum has a lush, velvety mouthfeel that conveys its quality and long maturation. The rum has a soothing warmth without any harsh bite, a hallmark of its meticulous aging process.
