Hee Joy Origins Rhum
Hee Joy Origins is a blend of traditional rums from Jamaica, Trinidad & Guyana, carefully selected and aged in separate barrels within each distillery of origin. They are then blended and matured in French oak barrels in Cognac, France. The extraordinary balance of Hee Joy Origins comes from the complexity and richness of the aromas of the three origins. The 3 rums are aged for 5 years in their respective barrels and climates before being blended in Cognac barrels.Hee Joy is an exceptional rum. It should be drunk neat and at temperature.
Hee Joy Origins is a blend of traditional English rums from three countries renowned for the quality of their rums: Jamaica for strength (40% of the blend), Trinidad & Tobago for intensity of flavors (40%), and Guyana for complexity (20%). Each of the rums is first aged between 3 and 5 years in its country of origin, in ex-bourbon barrels (for the Jamaican rum), or in used or new American oak barrels (for the other 2).
The barrels are then imported to France in the Cognac region (in Grande Champagne to be precise). The rums are reduced to 40°, blended, and then matured in oak barrels that have contained cognac for over 20 years.
This Origins rum has a Mahogany hue with old gold accents.
On the nose, woody aromas are revealed with intensity. The candied fruit scents are balanced by generous honeyed flavors.
Tasty notes of sugar cane dominate the tasting in the heart of an exotic fruitiness.
The finish shows a very nice balance.
