AGE: 13 Year Old


CASK #: 44


ABV: 59% Vol.

MALTFASCINATION: A rather spicy and woody rum. Lots of oaky notes, some vanilla, raisins, and proper rum sweetness. A whiff of paint stripper, but that only adds to its complexity. There’s chocolate and some tonka beans.

SIP: Dry and strong, but not ridiculously sharp. Peppery heat, some harsh oak. It does build up in heat, some iron and minerals. Fruity, funky, sugary.

SWALLOW: Something green, forest like. Lots of unripe fruits. Mango and such, but the hard kind. A slight funkiness. Not an overly long finish.

Well, this is a good one! I wasn’t sure what to expect of a 13 year old rum. Mostly because I don’t know much about rum and it is made in so many different ways that it’s always a bit of a gamble. But, after having tasted this, the complexity and depth are remarkable, and very intriguing. I like most that it’s not a full on sweetness that dictates the tasting notes.
