About this deal

On the nose rich, notes of dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas combine with sweet toffee, butterscotch and caramel culminating with a suggestion of orange peel, vanilla and buttered wood. ON THE NOSE
A harmonious balance of fresh sugarcane with hints of vanilla, dried light oak and touches of earthy, herbal notes normally associated with sugarcane juice rum.

The rum matures in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-cognac casks to create its exceptional flavour. There is a bright fruit character to the palate, supported by hints of liquorice, which is well-rounded and lingers on the finish. Continuing to celebrate the legacy of Olaudah Equiano, Equiano Light is inspired by the theme of enlightenment, a period where his acclaimed memoirs, ' The Interesting Narrative of Olaudah Equiano', played a pivotal role in shaping positive change.The Barbados rum is from Foursquare distillery and is aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon casks, while the Mauritian rum is from Gray’s distillery and is aged for 2 years in French oak casks. With no added sugar, no colorants, and no spice, expect flavours that come only from the barrel, with rich notes of dried fruits, natural sweet notes with a medium finish. Although Equiano is a naturally sweet rum with no added sugar or spices, it has a medium to sweet ending with touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper with a hint of bitter orange peel. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.

ON THE PALATE
Equiano delivers all the natural sweet notes of a well-aged rum from American white oak ex-bourbon casks. If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout. The funds raised from every sale on this site go directly to The Equiano Rum Co Foundation Grant, which will support Anti-Slavery International throughout the next year. I received a sample of this rum in this year's (2021) MoM Advent calendar and thus far (17 days in) it has been one of the highlights.

These notes continue in the palate as well as hints of caramelised sugar and rich toffee before leading into the sweet medium finish with gentle liquorice tones appearing at the close. A collaboration between two prestigious distilleries, this premium rum marries 1 1 year cognac cask rum from Gray's distillery in Mauritius, with 8 year bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados.

Introduction In the rugged, picturesque landscapes of the Cambrian Mountains near Aberystwyth, Wales offers tales steeped in myth and legend. Made with collaboration between the very well respected Foursquare (from Barbados) and Gray's Distillery (from Mauritius).the two separate rums are then married in ex-bourbon casks before being bottled at the Foursquare distillery. The collaboration of two distilleries on two different continents creates something entirely new for a centuries old craft. We made this pledge before we had a business registered, before a name or a product had been conceived.
