100% aged in a refill Rum cask for 6 years and bottled at a mighty natural cask strength of 60.5%

Nose: Griddled fresh pineapple dusted with vanilla icing sugar, banana foam sweets, buttery shortbread, toasted oats and demorera sugar topped custard tarts.
Palate: Tropical fruit, rum truffles, demorera sugar topped mocha, dusting of cinnamon, some waxy lime and spiced lemon curd, sappy vanilla oak and peppery almond milk.
Finish: Rum bhaba, pineapple chunks, green apple, vanilla icing, sugared almonds, pick and mix fizzy spice.
An adult candyshop of a Whisky, big Rum cask influence as you might expect and a drop of water brings out some lovely creamy rum and raisin fudge notes.
