Whilst Hunter Laing are specialists in blended and single malt scotch whiskies, over the years they have been fortunate enough to acquire stocks of aged rums, from places such as Guyana and Jamaica. We are pleased now to offer some of these to our customers on the basis, of course, that they meet the same exacting quality standards required for their bottlings of whisky.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, islanders referred to their locally made distillates as Kill Devil. Whilst today many of the old superstitions have gone, the Caribbean is still the source of many exotic rums.
The Kill Devil series showcases the quality and diversity of rum from the Caribbean and further afield – single casks are specially selected for shipment to Scotland, to be carefully and traditionally bottled by hand. The single cask bottlings are presented in gift tubes and the rums are bottled at 46% or at natural cask strength – also referred to as navy strength in the rum world – not chill-filtered and without colouring.
