A classy package with the rum adding its character to an already well-matured spirit. This is what finishing is about.
RumWood, Aged 14 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Oak driven. Crushed toasted hazelnuts on top of a banana and chocolate dessert. Needs time to open and show its full rich sweet depth.
Palate: Gentle and well layered. Cigar, caramelised peach. Deep and balanced.
Finish: A rich concentrated fruitiness that then gives way to a crisp oak.
Comment: A classy package with the rum adding its character to an already well-matured spirit. This is what finishing is about.
Nose: Fruity and creamy. Luscious caramel aromas. Candied orange. A touch of praline.
Palate: Velvety, coating. Orange custard. Gets very spicy, cinnamon and ginger. Exotic citrus, vetiver. A distant note of coconut.
Finish: Spicy, dry. Dark chocolate bitter bite.
Comment: A rich whisky which has taken some exotic and sensuous notes from the rum. Stiffens up on the finish.
