Type: Rhum Agricole
It is in the Esperance distillery, the oldest in Guadeloupe, that the range of Karukera rums is developed, also benefiting from their ancestral savoir-faire.
Produced from a single variety of sugar cane, the blue cane, coming exclusively from 70 hectares of estate plantation, Karukera rums are distinguished by their aromas of fresh sugar cane and citrus fruits typical of this variety of cane, true ADN of this rum. Put in jug directly at the Estate, this magnificent expression of Karukera celebrates, more than a half millennium after its discovery by Christopher Columbus, the island with beautiful waters>/em> (Guadeloupe), known by the Native American Indians under the name of Karukera.
Color: old gold with amber reflections.
Nose: medicinal and inebriating. The tiger balm, the benzoin and the camphor disappear to give way to plums and exotic fruits (guava). In the background, the sweetness of the artichoke base can be perceived. Complex and seductive, postpones the moment of tasting.
Mouth: steady, lively. It responds to the expectations of the nose with more pleasant plants notes (cut hay) and citrus peel. The plums become larger and their minerals remain on the skin. It is prolonged on the white flowers (lily of the valley, lilac).
Aftertaste: long, full of life. Some red fruit (raspberry, strawberry) and coconut keep the sugar cane company. A fine boishighlights its inebriating and balsamic character (pine, cedar). The bottom of the glass is medicinal and slightly salty. Since then, sugar cane takes over.
