Batavia Arrack Indonesia Rum

Category: Asian Specialty Spirit

Date Tasted:
Country: Indonesia
Alcohol: 48%
Brilliant gold color. Complex aromas and flavors of grilled and caramelized whole plantains and nuts, hot copper pot, and ground nuts and minerals with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an even, interesting, medium-long finish displaying notes of wet alpaca wool, leather bound book, rice water and plant, and brown sugar in chamomile tea finish. A rich and refined Batavia Arrack for sipping or cocktails.
