Cask No. 72.65
The Panel found themselves sitting on a beach quaffing cachaça and lime juice, slathered in coconut sunscreen and eating some bananas flambeed in old demerara rum. A heady mix of lime and brine with rose petals and fresh pineapple juice. Reduction brought milk bottle candies, malted milk ice cream, white chocolate, pecan pie and banana milkshake with custard doughnuts.
The palate was initially full of rum baba, spiced honey, cinnamon swirls, peach syrup and syrupy bourbon cocktails. Water brought buttered scones, lime curd, lychee, salted caramel and rum and raisin ice cream. Matured in a bourbon barrel for 18 years before being transferred to a refill Trinidad rum barrel.
