Akal Le Sanglier XO Cognac Aged Rare Cask Rum is quite the rare and exciting release we have here on our hands! This rum was created by one of the last West Indian family-owned rum houses, with a master blender who is one of only two women in the Rum Hall of Fame. This rum is rather unique as it was distilled in Trinidad, then blended with two types of high-altitude Indian teas and fifteen tropical aromatic flower petals. Next, it underwent a double oak ageing process: the first aging is in American Oak Bourbon Barrels, the second in Limousin European Oak, XO Cognac Barrels. The end result is a rum with bold opening notes of exotic spice and flowers that progress to apricot, ripe apple and pear. It ends in lingering tones of caramel and malty tea.
