KARUKERA L’INTENSE
STYLE: RHUM AGRICOLE
REGION: GUADELOUPE
ABV: 60.3%

This powerful agricole will challenge your preconceptions of white rhum. Another of the rhum world’s experiments with cultivar and terroir, this is distilled from blue cane harvested at the peak of its maturity to maximize the plant’s saccharines. On the nose this is creamy and herbal, with a purity of flavour and concentrated cane sweetness on the palate; hot at full strength, yes, but dissipating into fresh herbs with a long, lazy menthol finish. This is not for the faint of heart but the reward is a soulful and surprisingly complex new make spirit.
