|The Rum Collective's 2nd Meeting|
1.25oz. Novo Fogo Silver infused with pineapple and Thai basil
1oz. Imbue Vermouth
Basil leaf garnish
Dragos' relaxed informal style sets a tone that brings forth questions, answers and more information for everyone to learn from. The tasting ensues beginning with the Novo Fogo Silver. It is aged in steel tanks for over one year. The variety of aromas of this clear spirit is surpringly impressive. Those who attended had the unique opportunity to be the first to try a Novo Fogo product not available anywhere else. An unreleased sample bottle of a Novo Fogo, aged for one year in American oak barrels, was brought back from Brazil recently and has made its way here. Oh yeah!
