About this deal

The two rums are then blended and aged for an additional 6 months in ex-cognac casks, giving Equiano its distinct flavour profile. On the palate: Equiano delivers all the natural sweet notes of a well-aged rum from American white oak ex-bourbon casks. are on a mission to redefine a four-century-old industry by creating unique blends of rum from around the world. Equiano starts its journey at Gray's distillery in Mauritius, where fresh molasses is barrelled for 10 years in a combination of French Limousin Oak and Cognac casks, giving the liquid complexity and depth of flavour. The collaboration of two distilleries on two different continents creates something entirely new for a centuries old craft.

To 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. The liquid has no added sugar, no colorants and no added spices, only original flavours that come from the barrels. 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.

Tropical warmth on the nose, alongside rich notes of dried fruits and a touch of butterscotch and caramel. On the nose: Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your 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. It has a warm toffee and butterscotch mouth-feel, with chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours that emerge from the liquid as it caresses your tongue. 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.

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. ON THE PALATE

Like any quality premium barrel aged rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose.
