24 Days of Rum (#9) – William Hinton 3 Year Old Rum (Madeira)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 9, 2019

I have reached Rum number 9 in my Christmas Advent, a mild Agricole-like rum from Madeira. Madeira (an autonomous region of Portugal) is an archipelago comprising 4 islands approximately 520 kilometers off the northwest coast of Africa.

William Hinton founded his Distillery in 1845 producing his rum from local sugar cane juice. The Distillery had great success and by 1920 was processing 600 tons of sugar cane daily. Unfortunately, this was the peak of the Distillery’s rum production and a decline eventually saw the distillery cease production in 1986.

Fortunately, in 2006, William Hinton’s heirs relaunched the distillery using an alembic still. Their William Hinton 3 Year Old Rum is produced from sugar cane syrup which has undergone a special prolonged fermentation process and aged in French oak barrels.

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

Review: William Hinton 3 Year Old Rum

“… Light and floral almost delicate with a mild herbal quality, hints of camphor, ginger and cinnamon as well as a light light fruitiness of banana and green grape, perhaps a touch of red licorice …”

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.
