Mohan Meakin Distillery Old Monk The Legend 12yr 42,8%

RX1735 Average Column Still Rum Under 50€

Old Monk The Legend 12-Year-Old Rum from Mohan Meakin Distillery in India is a distinctive choice for rum enthusiasts. Distilled from molasses using a column still and aged for 12 years, this 42.8% ABV rum offers a captivating nose with aromas of rich caramel, vanilla, and baking spices, alongside hints of waxes and orange. The palate is sweet, featuring strong notes of caramel and vanilla, complemented by orange and a warming spice finish. Although some find it too sweet to sip neat, it shines in cocktails or as an ingredient in Christmas cakes. With an intriguing musty and herbal backdrop, Old Monk The Legend adds a unique twist to any rum collection.

“Interesting nose. Drying spice, wax and oranges. Reminds me of a Christmas cake. Something herbal and musty. The palate is extremely sweet, clogging. A big hit of vanilla to begin, the oranges from the nose, but this is a sweeter orange. Caramel towards the end. The short finish for me presented as a general salted caramel note. Better than the 7 year old from Old Monk, but still not great. Artificial tasting and too sweet for drinking neat. Could work in cocktails or cakes.”
