Equiano is a true rum
100% natural, no additives, no sugar, no spices, no colorants and certainly no sulfites - just deep and rich in flavours, combined to create a modern and matured sipping rum.
Rich, notes of dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas combine with sweet toffee, butterscotch and caramel, culminating with a suggestion of orange peel, vanilla and buttered wood.
TASTING NOTES WRITTEN BY IAN BURRELL
On the nose: Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. Rich, notes of dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas combine with sweet toffee, butterscotch and caramel culminating with a suggestion of orange peel, vanilla and buttered wood.
On the palate: Equiano delivers all the natural sweet notes of a well-aged rum from American white oak ex-bourbon casks. It has a warm toffee and butterscotch mouth-feel, with chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours that emerge from the liquid as it caresses your tongue.
To finish: Although Equiano is a naturally sweet rum with no added sugar or spices, it has a medium to sweet ending with touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper with a hint of bitter orange peel.
Enjoy Equiano neat, on the rocks or with a favourite mixer
