“Pleasant rum, but nothing more.”

“Bought this Rhum from Catawiki to a very good price together with some other bottles. Karukera is produced by the Esperance distillery in Guadeloupe that also produces Longuetau. Karukera is the name the indigenous people called their island which means 'The island of beautiful waters'. It’s distilled in the distillery’s column still, but the details how it has been aged differs, some says for seven years in French bourbon and cognac barrels others says five years in new charred barrels. Maybe there are two different ones. Overall a super smooth and round Rhum that probably is a very good introduction to Rhum from Guadeloupe.”

“Un Karukera au profil atypique dont le bousinage du fût se fait remarquer dès les premiers instants avec les notes rôties et torréfiées, le café, les épices et le bois (chêne notamment). On ressent aussi des notes florales qui contrebalancent bien le profil, des arômes fruités et du toffee. En bouche, l’attaque est chaude mais très concentrée sur le côté grillé et épicé, ne laissant pas paraître grand chose d’autre malheureusement. La finale, moyenne en longueur, revient sur les notes fumées, boisées, épicées, florales et fruitées pour laisser une dernière impression agréable. Bien qu’il soit très concentré sur l’aspect rôti et grillé, c’est un rhum sympathique qui se boit facilement. Un bon rhum pour le passage au monde agricole.”
