Fair Spirits produces high-quality liquors using only source materials from ethical and fair-trade cooperatives. Their distillery in the Cognac region of France is run with passion by master distiller Philip Laclie. In this case, Belize’s sugar cane gets transformed into an intense and balanced rum despite the cask strength bottling at 53,8% ABV.
In the glass it is fresh, with hints of menthol, marzipan, and ginger. Wood and cocoa, together with orange peel, are present on the palate. Spices, cocoa, and orange peel, with balsamic highlights, in the finish.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the rums tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those who scored the best were selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The only indication on the sample concerns the ABV content: a red mark states that the product has an ABV higher than 50% (100° proof). The test results are then compared, and the TOP 10 is made. This list will be published in detail in the Winter 2020 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
