2 Masters Chateau d’Arche 1980
A 37 year-old Dictador Rum from a 1980 single vintage cask finished in whisky barrels then shipped to Château d’Arche in Sauternes, Bordeaux, France, where it further spent six months in American oak barrels of 225 litres. It is a typical size for Bordeaux wines. This barrel has been filled up with Château d’Arche for the vintage 2014.
Nose : A plethora of sweetness with vanilla crème brulée, dark caramel-coated chocolate and plenty of dried fruits including figs, dates and quince, then hints of toasted bread and orange rind.
Palate : Quite an interesting marriage with marzipan, dried apricots and cloudberry marmalade over maple syrup, milk chocolate and crème brulée. Once the initial burn dissipates, true rum character comes through overtaking the “foreign” flavours and it finishes nicely with a relatively balanced supple golden fruit cake with hints of toast. Fine and supple.
Color : A firm dark bronze going out into a lighter golden hue at the rim, showing high viscosity with fine long legs in the glass. Matured in Fine American Oak medium heat
Time of Finishing: 6 months
Quantity: 390 bottles
