Review #782 | /r/Rum Review #28 – Paranubes Rum
The Schtick: “Paranubes Rum is made by wild fermenting the fresh pressed juice of sugarcane grown without pesticide or fertilizer in the rich soil of master distiller Jose Luis Carrera’s farm. Distilled to proof with no additives, this rum – or aguardiente de cana as it’s known regionally, is exactly what you would find lost in the cloud forest of the Sierra Mazaeca mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico.” – Paranubes Website
Distiller: Jose Luis Carrera (Paranubes Rum)
Bottler: Paranubes Rum
ABV: 54% ABV
Nose: Vinegar, tomatoes. Sour grapes. Ammonia. Super, super earthy. Funky and all over the place, but rich.
Taste: Medium mouth feel. Pickled onions, vinegar. Sweet cream, mild heat. Faint rubber. Tomatoes, ammonia.
Finish: Long, rich, acidic. Lots of sourness here and a vinegar-y acidic kick.
Overall: This is weird. I bet it makes some mean cocktails. It’s super complex and pretty well done, but I’m not sure I’d come around to it that often.
