The small, yet picturesque island of Mauritius shares a familiar history with many of the Caribbean isles, despite being half the globe away. The island was discovered by the Arabs, mapped by the Portuguese, then colonised by the Dutch, then the French until they surrendered to the the British who set out to capture the island during the Napoleonic wars.
History tells us that European navies and armies were a thirsty lot who took their drink producing knowledge wherever they traveled. In Mauritius, sugar was widely available, and where there's sugar and a Navy, there's Rum!
This is a clean and faultless white rum that offers an appealing fusion of styles; the French 'Agricole' influence is clear while the British mint and spices also make their presence felt. Green Island unfortunately lacks the intensity, power and depth required to justify this price point.
Tasting Notes: Crystal clear in colour with crystal clear hue. A mild to aromatic nose delivers restrained aromas of cinnamon, stewed apple, vanilla icing and pastry. The palate is creamy and soft and delivers flavours similar to the nose, with the addition of a touch of mint and a small sprinkling of green pepper. Clean minty pepper back palate. Fresh clean finish. Aftertaste of mint, stewed apple, celery and spice. 37.0% Alc./Vol.
