Ron Kuna 8 Años rum is an interesting blend of rum-making traditions.
During the Panamanian Dry Season (from December through April), freshly-pressed sugar cane juice is fermented and then distilled before being placed in ex- Bourbon oak barrels for ageing. During the wetter months our expert rum maker uses a combination of pressed cane juice and molasses for its fermentation base.
After eight years in the barrels, the rum is blended and then raised in famous Château Pape Clement casks in Bordeaux, France, for six months before final reduction and bottling processes. This will give the liquid sweet and subtle smoky aromas with hint of red fruit flavours and a smooth and unique character.
Tasting Notes :
Appearance : Light gold colour in a glass which in the light takes on the same shade as fresh honey. The liquid’s legs appear thin and sharp and strongly but cling to the glass.
Nose: The nose of Ron Kuna is dry at first, with hints of flowers and straw before giving way to heavier, richer notes of vanilla and caramel. A hint of red wine-casks maturation also arises.
Palate: Ron Kuna shows warm flavours of toffee and caramel at first. It then introduces oral notes of vanilla and apple blossom and finishes with earthy notes of leather. The texture is rich with full dry red fruits and matured red wine hint on the tongue.
Finish: liquid sweet and subtle smoky aromas with hint of red fruit flavours and a smooth and unique character.
