- Liquorice root
from Billy Abbott
- Nose: Rich raisins, stewed apricots and soft brown sugar are balanced by drying woody tannins hinting at recently emptied cigar boxes.
- Palate: Rich and sticky, with more raisins, cinnamon butter and caramelised bananas shot through with soft caramel which holds it all together.
- Finish: Lingering hints of liquorice root and dark sugars sweetened up by light sugar syrup.
- Comment: A rum that shows the power of good cask management – an excellent selection of well-matured rums, blended by a master and finished in high-quality PX casks to add depth and complexity to an already impressive spirit.
