The British Navy’s love of the rum from Guyana is well-documented. This single cask bottling of rum was distilled in the legendary and Port Mourant still, which has a history almost as long as the Royal Navy ration.
NOSE: Dense liquorice, star anise and fruity black olives accompanied by heady cigar smoke and fragrant pine. Warm and ripe citrus fruit – orange and lemon peel – blends with spicy cinnamon and nutmeg.
PALATE: Thick, dark treacle and olive brine mixed with cherry concentrate, cigar smoke and charred wood. More smoke comes through on the palate, mixing with the flavours of plump sultanas, bittersweet raisins and juicy blackcurrants.
FINISH: The balance between sweet and savoury is extraordinary and keeps developing on the palate, creating a finish that lasts for an age.
