Old New Orleans 10 Year Rum
Old New Orleans // Louisiana, USA
Nestled into an industrial area between two freeways north of the famous French Quarter, the Old New Orleans rum distillery has beaten the odds as a craft distillery and as a survivor of Hurricane Katrina. In addition to the 10 year offering, they also produce a white and spiced rum.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"Upon nosing, astringency is non-existent, and the aroma is filled with fruit, both actual and artificial: canned cling-peaches, banana candy, and Fuji and Granny Smith apples. Under the fruit there is a hint of musty funkiness. The entry is a tad hot with pepper and cinnamon, but the heat quickly fades and gives way to the apple and banana. The mouthfeel is very thin and watery, and the finish quite short with a hint of bitterness. Subsequent sips provide some hard candy flavors including toffee, butterscotch and cherry. Thin and fruity, this rum simply is not worth the price."
