Martinique rum

Double Gold Medal. Madrid Rum Festival 2018

INTRODUCTION : “Fighting spirit” evokes fortitude and valour- determination to win, whatever the odds. It also evokes a famous spirit drink issued to combat troops during the two world wars to boost morale. People with fighting spirit don’t take “no” for an answer! Fighting Spirit Gold is one of the top white rums in Chantal Comte’s exclusive collection. After “Fighting Spirit Red Line”, and «Fighting Spirit Blue», «Fighting Spirit Gold” combines power with a delightful floral bouquet. It is a premium spirit in a premium bottle.

EYE : crystal clear and diamond bright.

NOSE : all the mouth-watering aromas of its two predecessors, “Fighting Spirit Red Line, and «Fighting Spirit Blue”, with hints of sea air (saline and iodine notes) and more dominant floral notes (stephanotis and Samana flowers, to be exact.).

MOUTH : a smooth, sweet honey-like flavour quenches the flame of the alcohol. There are lovely hints of sugar cane, fruit and exotic flowers.

PROOF : 50% Vol

RECOMMENDATIONS : Try it neat, at room temperature, like a grappa, at cocktail time or at the end of a good meal. Personally, I recommend serving Fighting Spirit Gold neat and well-chilled. Ice would dilute its boldness, and mixers tend to mask some of its uniquely distinctive taste qualities. (However, if you are an unabashed lover of traditional Creole “‘Ti Punch”, indulge yourself and add just the right amount of cane syrup and freshly squeezed lime!).

Absolutely delicious for a Caribbean cocktail party, with accras de morue (cod fritters), boudin antillais (Antilles black pudding),and féroce d’avocat (spicy avocado & cod mix). Also magnificent with bottarga or classic fare like oysters, caviar and smoked fish.

This rum is produced by Distillerie du Simon, the famous distillery on the Atlantic coast of the island of Martinique.
