Soft citrus, delicate wood tannins, tropical fruits, orange blossom , rich espresso coffee notes, salted ham with cloves and honey glaze.
Beautifully balanced, smooth and complex with citrus, tropical fruits, nutty aromas with hints of vanilla.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Light and reserved aromas of demerara sugar. Pretty flavors of light brown sugar are slightly sweet, supported by notes of vanilla, barely browned caramel and generous nutmeg and cinnamon, and hints of peach pit. Unique and lovely. (Mar 2015)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Distinct, yet delicate perfume of banana, campfire smoke and bacon fat. Delightfully light bodied with tropical fruit masking deeper, gamey flavors. Finishes strong with a graceful salinity. Outstanding. (Apr 2014)
Travel into the heart of our sugar cane estate and there you will discover the oldest distillery in Mauritius. Medine has been making rum since 1926 and it is here that our limited edition XO Mauritian rum has been matured in Cognac, Whisky and Bourbon casks.
Doug McIvor from Berry Bros. & Rudd, the world’s oldest wine and spirit merchant, and Jean Francois Koenig, Master Distiller from Medine Distillery, combine their expertise to select individual casks at the very peak of their maturity.
Created in small batches, each one with its own personality, our rum is bottled on the estate and is, by definition, rare and finite. Penny Blue is always natural in color and is not chill-filtered in order to preserve the heart of the rum.
|Printed in Mauritius in 1847, the Penny Blue stamp immediately became a collector’s item because of its inscription. A mistake by the engraver resulted in it reading ”Post Office” rather than the usual ”Post Paid”. From the thousand stamps printed at the time, only twelve are believed to be in existence today. the Penny Blue stamp is as rare and highly collectible as our small batch rum.
