Naga

Pearl of Jakarta

It was at the end of the 15th century, the Portuguese reached the island of Java and discovered the sugar cane plantations managed by the Chinese. The Chinese had a secret recipe that allowed them to ferment the molasses before distilling it to obtain the Indonesian rum known today as "Batavia Arrack". This rum differs from other rums by using red yeast rice in the fermentation process. Naga is distilled using a traditional Chinese still and a column still. Since 1641, the rum, once distilled, has been placed in 570 litre casks made of teak - the traditional Indonesian wood, before being placed in oak barrels that used to contain bourbon. This Pearl of Jakarta edition is finished in sherry casks which gives it a rarely interesting structure and aromatic volume.

Asian Rums

From Indonesia – Java Island to Indochinese peninsula…

Naga Rums explore Asian traditions of sugar cane cultivation and rum distillation. The Nagas are one of the cultural and mythological links that unite this immense territory that stretches from the Bay of Bengal to the Java Sea, from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.

The figure of Naga is associated with water and fertility. The Naga can be protective, nurturing and even creative. Although they live in their own kingdom, some Nagas can transform themselves to visit the world of humans in the form of snake or a handsome young man.

Guardians of Nature

The name Naga is that of the mythical creature of Asia, Serpent guardian of the treasures of the earth and symbol of prosperity, fertility and protector of the treasures of nature.

The Naga is a mythical being of Hinduism, but the word also means basically, serpent. The Naga in religion keep the treasures of nature and are attached to water and bring prosperity.

In the legends of India and all of Southeast Asia, the Nagas are inhabitants of the underworld where the jealously guard the treasures of the earth. It is also in the Naga that the fertility of the soil is due.

 

Tasting Notes

Nose: Caramelised nose and vanilla sugar with a touch of dried and candied fruits. It then gives off slightly smoky and toasted notes.

Taste: On the palate, it is a round and greedy rum that unfolds woody aromas before developing on notes of nougat and roasted nuts.

Finish: The finish is greedy with walnut and black cherry jam.

    Det är riktig rom för mig, full pott, 5 solar. Den har en fantastisk doft, lättdrucken men ändå otrolig spännvidd av smaker

    Le seul rhum asiatique du calendrier qui est assez bon en bouche. Mais pas plus que 3/5 pour moi. Ces rhums asiatiques ne m’auront pas vraiment plus cette année. Mais bonne expérience car je ne connaissais pas.
