Rum, like the whisky industry, uses American oak casks from Kentucky. American white oak gives a more vanilla-rich set of flavours than the more complex European oak. Here, Bruichladdich’s elegant spirit has matured beside the Atlantic Ocean for 15 years in American oak barrels and then matured for two more years in select individual casks from Guyana’s legendary Uitvlugt and Enmore distilleries.
The result is a tropical island cocktail of decadent proportions for when the taxman’s taken all your dough, you can’t sail your yacht and all you've got is a lazy sunny afternoon.
Bruichladdich’s legendary marine-influenced spirit integrating bourbon’s vanilla flavours and exploiting lush Caribbean sweetness – summertime, and the living is easy.
Character: Strong and smooth with a superfine texture, it glides over the palate leaving a Caribbean sunshine warmth which really gets the senses just a little bit excited and then some.
Colour: Chartreuse/Gilded Lily.
Nose: The beautiful aromas of butterscotch, light vanilla and soft marzipan drift over the olfactory senses like marshmallow clouds on a summer’s day. It’s an exciting combo of sweetness and fruit with some floral notes of mimosa, honeysuckle and acacia honey. The oak is there: mellow, mature and providing a superb stage on which the other aromatics can perform. The taste buds are on anticipation alert and they will not be disappointed. The Mardi Gras excitement is about to happen!
Palate: It’s carnival time. Unbelievably, first to perform is the butterscotch and sweet bourbon oak flavours. It’s exciting yet sophisticated as the sweetness of malted barley, American oak and golden rum connect and deliver a stunning taste performance. At this age it’s a spirit in its prime, all those years maturing on Scotland’s Caribbean Island - “Islay” - have honed this spirit to taste perfection.
Finish: The flavours last long into the night and when you awake in the morning there will still be a whisper to remind you of your party in a glass. There is so much happening it’s a taste carnival. Enjoy the experience.
Mood: Mellow, relaxing, wind down. Great with a cigar.
