MEZAN Trinidad 2009 46%
MEZAN Trinidad 2009 rum is produced at the famous TDL distillery in Trinidad. Based in Port-of-Spain, TDL cultivates its own strain of yeast that adds individuality to its sugar cane molasses fermentation. The fermentation process takes about 48 hours and is left to rest for several more days to enhance flavor development before distillation. This vintage was originally aged in Trinidad for 3 years using heavily charred first fill Bourbon casks and rum casks formerly used in our European cellar, resulting in a rich dark color.
Nose: Slightly spicy oak note with hints of vanilla, leather and cedar wood.
Mouth: Gourmet, spicy, with notes of bananas, tropical fruits.
Finish: Balanced, with complex woody notes.
The cellar master of Mezan travels to the Caribbean in search of hidden treasures, these intact, unsweetened, uncolored and unfiltered rums. All Mezan rums are aged in old Bourbon casks until they reach their optimum level of maturity. Bourbon casks affect the final taste of the rum the least. The decision was deliberate, aimed at optimally preserving the particular identity and singular character of each rum. The rums are aged in two stages; first in the hot and humid climate of the tropics, then in Europe to complete the process. The second stage proves advantageous, because it causes less oxidation and avoids an excessive concentration of esters.
