Cask No. R2.19 Rum



From the last working wooden continuous coffey still first installed in 1880 at the Enmore Estate in Guyana comes this sample. Immediately sweet tropical fruits arrived on the nose neat, soaked in rum (no surprise here!) additionally also with plenty of spices. Sweet and very viscous on the palate but a burning sensation in the throat like when swallowing extra virgin olive oil.

Nothing plenty of water and time cannot fix, as nearly always with high-strength rum ‘water is your friend’ and ‘taking your time is not being lazy’. Now we imagined pirate cutlasses with leather scabbards, wooden planks and legs, parrots and, as one panel member phrased it, “satisfying glue and petrol”.
