Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Class Magazine

    Appearance: Clear, pale golden yellow.
    Aroma: Pungent and fruity - pineapple and red grapefruit juice with light sweet vanilla oak.
    Taste: Slightly sweet and fruity - grapefruit zest and pear, yet at the same time lightly aggressive with faint note reminiscent of oily paint.
    Aftertaste: Fruity finish with lingering notes of old-fashioned oil paint.

    My father drank this for years and picked up the nickname of Vat 19 amongst friends and family. Having also sampled it I can see why, such a smooth rum. I always thought it could be only purchased in N. Ireland, but I managed to pick up a few bottles in Benidorm. I too have also heard it is being discontinued in N. Ireland, perhaps sales are down since daddy vat 19 is no longer buying it.
