Pink Pigeon Rumhttp://www.pinkpigeonrum.com - The Pink Pigeon is one of the rarest birds in the world and flies free in the skies of Mauritius, the tropical paradise of the Indian Ocean. Some of the world’s finest sugar cane is also grown here on the Medine Estate.It is from this natural source that we make our exquisite and rare rum. Uniquely, we add hand-picked vanilla from orchids that grow in the rainforest canopy of nearby Madagascar. This combined with the exotic, tropical flavors of spice and nutmeg make our rum as exquisite and rare as the Pink Pigeon itself.
Pink Pigeon Rum (80-Proof, 40% ABV):
This rum features a light amber color with green fluorite undertones. The aroma is intensely vanillin-centric, with a touch of honey and orange-infused cinnamon.
In the palate, the rum opens up slightly spicy, quickly coating the tongue and revealing a rich ensemble of holiday pastries and warm winter spiced drinks. The sweetness in the rum helps prolong the aftertaste sensation for quite a while, ending with a dry note of orange peel.
