FNQ RUM CO IRIDIUM GOLD RUM
FNQ RUM Co. Iridium Gold Rum is made with care from sugar cane syrup grown on rich volcanic soil areas that surround Mt. Uncle Distillery. Lending the spirit to harness the sweet hypnotic notes of fresh crushed cane and the rich minerality of fertile volcanic soil. Iridium Gold Rum’s colour is purely obtained from the five years spent in ex-red wine reconditioned all American Oak Hogshead barrels. Absolutely no caramel or preservatives or additives are added to produce this magnificent gold hue. The spirit is sweet and delicious with cane notes from its tropical origin with vanilla and caramel and haunts of sherry and port from this, the best in the world in 2019 award winning rum – a wonderful sipping rum!
Heavy and thick, treacle brims off the nose of the rum. Slight spices of cinnamon, brimming with a burnt aroma and a green freshness of crushed sugarcane. Nose opens over time with a minty display covering in caramel fudge tones, the sugarcane laden and brushed with honey. On the palate it is as oily and thick as can be expected from the nose. Trails of sugarcane and spices settle through, the vanilla and caramel fudge flavours interspersed with green herbs.
