Tiki Lovers Dark Rum
Tiki Lovers Dark Rum
TIKI LOVERS Dark Rum is bottled at a hefty English proof. At 57% Vol. it is the perfect marriage between unaged Jamaican pot-still rum from the famous Hampden Estate—Jamaica’s only distillery fully dedicated to heavy pot-still rums—and rum from Barbados, aged between 2 and 3 years, distilled at Foursquare distillery.
Both Rums come from Caribbean islands where Rum has been distilled for centuries, dating back to the 1700s. The barrels of the chosen Barbados Rum age on tropical shores, exposed to the sea breeze, warm climate and are high on evaporation rate, leading to a more complex and balanced spirit.
The final touch is a small blend of fresh column-still rums from both Trinidad and Guyana for ultimate complexity, rounded-off with 3-5 years-old Trinidadian Rum.
TIKI LOVERS Dark Rum was created in 2011 and is a complex, rich and masculine rum with hints of vanilla, dark fruit, molasses, and spice, evoking the flavor of the Caribbean Islands and its beloved rums that make drinks shine. TIKI LOVERS Dark Rum is fantastic on its own but shines bright in cocktails like the Mai Tai, Rum Punches, Fog Cutter, and Zombie.
SCENT & FLAVOR
Deep colour, almost opaque.
Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.
On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.
“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking
Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
