Gold Medal, 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition
The new rum from Diageo, Oronoco Rum sure has snazzy packaging.
The rum is made from Brazilian mountain cane and comes in a stylish bottle with a recycled leather wrap.
The rum is triple distilled by column and copper pot stills and blended with aged South American rums. It is aged in Brazilian amendoim wood casks to round out the flavor.
Clear with a faint straw cast. Robust vanilla, caramel taffy, and banana cream pie aromas. A round entry leads to an oily, off-dry medium-bodied palate with baked banana cream pie and peppery spice flavors. Finishes with a long, peppery, baked banana fade. An interesting, confected style for cocktails.
