24 Days of Rum (#11) – Toucan #4 Rhum (Madeira)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 11, 2019

Today I am traveling (at least in Spirit) to the equatorial zone of South America, at the edge of the rain forest where the Agricole Rhum, Toucan #4 is produced in French Guiana. (French Guiana is an overseas department of France on the northeast coast of South America, composed mainly of tropical rainforest.)

Toucan Rhum is produced at Rhumerie Saint-Maurice, located in the municipality of Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni (French Giana). This South American distillery is located about 350 km from the equator on the east coast. The sugar cane used for the production of Toucan Rhum is harvested from a field which sits at the edge of a virgin rain forest where the Toucan bird (from which the Rhum receives its name) still flourishes in great numbers.

Here is a link to my tasting notes and scores for the eleventh spirit in the 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box:

Review: Toucan No. 4 Rhum

“… Fine oak spice appears with a strengthened herbal impression which now reminds me of light tobacco with a dash of menthol. Bits of resin and camphor, butterscotch, orange peel and balsam wood. Shortbread cookies …”

Note: 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box produced by 1423 World Class Spirits contains 24 handpicked rums from 24 different countries all over the world. It features an extraordinary opportunity to sample a wide variety of premium rums allowing you to hone in on the particular style which suits your palate. As indicated in my previously published review (here) This Rum Advent Calendar is a highly recommended gift for the rum enthusiast.

    Ah, not a good sipper… 😦

    • It can be sipped, but it would much better in cocktails. The difficulty here is the lack of maturity. A proper sipping rum needs time in a barrel to smooth out the rough spots and to add the character required to make an enjoyable sipper.

    • There are lots of online retailers out there, so your best bet would be to do an internet search of the brand looking for and for online retailers. Alternately, you could contact the producer by doing an internet search for their website.
