Calvados - Cask Finish Collection
- N°1 . Caroni Rhum -
A.O.C. Calvados du Pays d'Auge
The “Cask Finish” collection is born from the desire to enrich the classic aromatic palette of our calvados by refining in casks that have previously contained wines and spirits.
This N° 1 edition, Calvados & Caroni Rhum Cask, offers a surprising alliance between the fried and pastry notes of Calvados and cane sugar, aromas that have made the reputation of the Caroni Rhum distilleries located on the Trinidad and Tobago islands.
Aimed at lovers of spirits, this collection in very limited quantities has been designed to surprise your taste buds and especially to make you happy!
The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice ferments completely to give the cider to distill. The double distillation takes place six months after the cider fermentation process. The first distillation of the cider gives the small water at 30% vol. and it is the second distillation, that of the little water, which gives Calvados.
Aging: 6 years minimum. In toasted oak barrels of 400 litres including 25% new barrels. Minimum finish 5 months in 220L barrels having contained Caroni Rhum.
Eye: Beautiful yellow color with deep golden highlights.
Nose: Greedy, fine, complex. Hints of sugarcane underlined by lovely roasted apples aromas.
Mouth: Frank attack, powerful mouth supported by aromas of cooked apples and fresh almond, long and persistent finish. Slightly peppery and very pastry vergeoise sugar aromas.
