RX18197 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 254 bottles Under 250€
“Intensely fruity, vibrant, and unique with a strong wine finish.”

The Deuxième Cru Classé Cask from the Renaissance distillery in Taiwan is a limited-release rum renowned for its unique and intense profile. Distilled from molasses and aged in a high-quality red wine cask, it boasts an ABV of 66.7%. This rum is celebrated for its rich, fruity flavors, featuring pronounced notes of strawberries, blackcurrant, and plums, coupled with a touch of medicinal and salty undertones. The aroma is equally captivating, with elements of lime, grapefruit, passion fruit, and kiwi, complemented by hints of lavender and maple syrup. The finish is long, with a well-integrated alcohol presence and a distinct influence from the red wine cask, adding complexity and depth. Ideal for those seeking a bold, exotic rum experience with high ester notes reminiscent of Savanna HERR.

“Wow, eine echte Überraschung! In der Nase eine spannende Mischung aus Stachelbeeren, Erdbeeren, (vergorene) Ester-Noten und tollem Holzeinfluss. In einem Blind-Tadting hätte ich vermutlich auf Savanna getippt. Am Gaumen ordentlich Power, ohne aber zu anstrengend zu sein. Auch am Gaumen kommen wieder die typischen Savanna Erdbeer-Mango-High-Ester-Assoziationen in den Sinn. Der Rotwein-Einfluss gefällt mir sehr gut. Erstklassiger Rum aus Taiwan. Danke Frank für das Sample! 🤩🥃”

“Franconian Tasting Gang Actually not bad, but doesn't really get me fully. Nice to have tried, but unfortunately not quite my profile. A little too bitter and medicinal for me. Probably the red wine finish is too dominant for me. But it could also be because I've tasted so much before. I might try it again at the next opportunity. Thanks Jarek for the sample for this round.”

“I can finally hold it in my hands. It's not easy and not cheap to get hold of a Renaissance. Individual bottles come via DK, UK and FR. Of course, it's better to buy it in Taiwan if you have the chance to be there. I just had that chance and even then you can't buy the rum anywhere. If you live in Taiwan, you can sign up to a list on fb and secure yourself a bottle. Friends of mine kindly did this for me and so I now have two bottles, one to share (already done ☺️) and one to enjoy... The distillery is experimenting with its excellent rum and various casks. This one was matured in a higher quality red wine cask - the second highest class in the Bordeaux classification - from the Médoc. The result is a multi-layered and intense rum... Nose: intense and powerful. Very fruity, sour-sweet, almost floral, with an interesting medicinal side note. I find lime with grapefruit, gooseberry with kiwi, redcurrant with passion fruit right at the forefront. Behind this is a cloud of lavender and lilac. The impression of ginger and maple syrup somehow goes well with this. There is also an artificial note with a strong, sweet nail polish. I really like it. 9.0 Palate: oha, the 66.7% is immediately noticeable. Very intense and strong, somewhat acrid. Salty and slightly bitter at first, before the sweet and sour fruitiness comes through again. Clearly passion fruit, kiwi and gooseberry with a little lemon zest, slightly fermented. Only after this can some red wine aroma penetrate. There is a clear similarity to some Savanna wines. Definitely meets my taste. 8,8 I was captivated by the small and fine Renaissance Distillery with its fantastic base spirit and great casks. And then this amazing label on the back with all the information you could wish for. Totally great!”
