AuRhum “Purity” Jamaican Rum | Rum Diaries Weblog

As we speak I’ve a well-recognized Rum however from an unfamiliar unbiased bottler. The acquainted Rum was distilled in St. Catherine (so we all know the place its origins lie) and the unfamiliar bottler is AuRhum….who hail from Denmark. Earlier than we dig into the bottle info it might be prudent to set the scene of who AuRhum truly are and why they select to do what they do.

AuRhum is an organization comprising three Rum lovers, Alexander Vincit, Lindy Andersen and Tommy Andersen. These three lovers have recognized one another for a few years they usually share a ardour for his or her Rum ‘interest’. However why determine to turn out to be unbiased bottlers in a market that’s turning into saturated? Various levels of high quality and ranging levels of honesty throughout the current market are two causes. The raison d’etre for these three lovers is that they imagine that the patron deserves an sincere method and expertise after they buy a bottle. In consequence their key guidelines are based mostly round zero components and nil sugar. They need the expertise to be genuine, sincere and extra importantly, reasonably priced with out having to spend upwards of £100 on a bottle. With all of this in thoughts, AuRhum goal to create a spread of bottlings which are both distinctive or that allow hardly ever seen distillates to be loved. As if their lofty, however wise objectives weren’t sufficient, as each Alexander and Lindy work within the armed forces they wish to help and help each present and former colleagues who maybe haven’t shared their luck. They insist that 5% of the corporate income have to be donated to a Veteran Charity in Denmark.

Fairly admirable stuff. However we have to shift focus to the bottle that’s being assessed at this time….AuRhum “Purity” Jamaican Rum

AuRhum “Purity” Jamaican Rum – 57% abv – 0g/l components

As talked about originally, we achieve a lot of the info that we’d like from the bottle, with the remaining questions being requested instantly. Distilled in St. Catherine, Jamaica can solely imply one factor, and that’s distillation on the mighty Worthy Park on their Forsyths double retort pot nonetheless. You may achieve a wealth of details about the distillery and its merchandise by clicking right here. The marque info is unavailable however usually probably the most generally accessible aged marque is WPL (Worthy Park Gentle – 60-119 gr/laa) though that’s not confirmed. Distilled in late 2013 / early 2014, the Rum was matured for 4 years on the distillery in ex-bourbon barrels previous to being shipped to Denmark in early 2018 for an extra 1 12 months ‘end’ in ex-Port casks. It was bottled for AuRhum in early 2019 and is a launch of 360 bottles, mine being hand numbered as 148 and it’s introduced at 57% abv with No Sugar, No Components and No Chill Filtration. It’s accessible for the equal of round £82 plus postage. If awards are your factor, it picked up a Gold on the 2019 Nordic Rum Fest.

Tasting Notes

Nostril: Good and punchy. Its obvious youth and related alcohol are fairly forceful initially. Happily they don’t stick round and dissipate quite rapidly after a couple of minutes within the glass. Instantly it reveals the now trademark signatures of a Worthy Park providing….Large strong notes of sturdy, stewed black tea. That is elevated and carried on a mushy overripe banana sweetness that throws mashed up mango into the combo, with spice bun and candy coconut milk rice. Heat blackcurrant jelly that has been lately poured over trifle sponges and is ready to set. Heavy berry and fortified wine notes themselves convey darkish chocolate, raisins, prune juice and a growing spiced attribute. This spice pushed side to the nostril is initially fairly peppery with cinnamon, fiery recent ginger and a touch of cumin. Because the Rum develops within the glass, and it actually does develop over time, extra of that candy rice and coconut milk begins to usher in a creamy attribute and the as soon as stewed black tea morphs right into a extra mellow and milky spiced chai providing. The merest trace of window putty makes itself recognized.

Mouth: Loads of warmth on the primary couple of visits. The relative youth of the rum coupled with its 57% abv signifies that it’s one which wants slightly acclimatisation. As your palate turns into accustomed to the warmth, a sharply candy and scorching spiced observe are the order of the day with fiery crystallised ginger and pepper balancing effectively with a bag of dried cranberries. Nearly instantly it feels just like the rum is beginning to dry out however quite confusingly as quickly as this sense has washed over the tip of your tongue, an actual saliva inducing sweetness bathes the perimeters of your mouth with tart and candy crimson and black currants and a touch of gooseberry which, given the huge amount of different Worthy Park bottlings that I’ve consumed, have to be on account of the port cask. Continuity is there from nostril to mid palate with the acquainted overripe banana and black tea mixing with the creamier coconut rice, vanilla rice pudding and milky chai. There’s a slice of bitter cherry pie main into the end that does possess some actual size and is closely spiced with ginger, black pepper and a contact of ginger cake. A bit darkish chocolate bitterness wrapped up with tart berries and sweeter prunes ushers in a return of a spicy crimson wine attribute. Possibly some raisins and a contact of sentimental liquorice. It turns into slightly bit ‘cigar ash’ on the again finish because the fruit dissipates and also you do start to really feel extra cask affect rising.

In Conclusion: It’s fairly younger, and it exhibits in each the heated nature of the distillate and its supply which may really feel slightly like an excited pet canine clamouring to your consideration. It’s additionally a fiery proposition, and one the place the alcohol carries some actual affect all through and because of this the transitions can really feel slightly jumpy, however the overarching issue stays that the bottom spirit is a really strong one. The ending interval in port casks has positively added one thing worthwhile to the Rum quite than detracting from it. For me it definitely is an satisfying Rum, and like that excited pet, I’ve grown fairly keen on it. Greater than value a purchase order.
