Grappa Sibona Riserva in Rum Barrels Cl 50
This special Grappa Riserva already aged, for a long period, in oak wood was later put to rest for several months in barrels previously used to age the “Rums” of some of the most prestigious distilleries. The particular sojourn in Rum barrels has been innovatively experimented by us on Grappa and with exceptional results from a quality point of view. The rich, elaborate aroma with spicy notes and the elegant, distinct flavor with notes of coffee and vanilla and a lingering finish are very reminiscent of that of the Rum already contained in these barrels.
