Denizen Merchant‘s Reserve 8yr 43%

RX8724 Good Pot Still Rum Under 50€
“Great for Mai Tais, pleasantly complex with unique flavors.”

Denizen Merchant’s Reserve is an 8-year-aged rum distilled from sugar cane juice using a pot still method, boasting an ABV of 43%. Users highlight its suitability for Mai Tais, with flavors of papaya, black pepper, anise, and a rich, buttery undertone. The nose features striking notes of parfum, tropical fruit, dried fruit, papaya, and demerara sugar. This rum shows a surprising blend of fruity and floral aromas contrasted by a mild funk and a hint of smokiness on the palate when sipped neat. While it's not ideal as a standalone sipper due to its alcoholic intensity, it excels in cocktails, especially Mai Tais, offering unexpectedly complex and pleasant flavors. Ideal for both rum enthusiasts and mixologists seeking a versatile and intriguing cocktail base.
