Barbagaya is Compagnie des Indes’ third small batch after the Dominidad and Veneragua. It results from a blend of 2 casks: one from Barbados from the Foursquare distillery, and the other from Guyana from the Diamond distillery. Both were distilled in April 2007 and aged just under 40% in Europe. The blending took place in April 2021 in our warehouse.
Nose: At first honeyed aroma emerges from the glass, then aromas of prunes and currants. It evolves into pine sap, iodine, and candied orange.
Mouth: A franc, woody, and roasted attack. Followed then by iced chestnut and English fudge notes, but also a touch of sweet chilli, mixed with lemongrass.
Finish: It’s deliciously indulgent, with the impression of biting into a pancake spread.
