Released on 17 May 2019, this Rum was showcased at the Sydney Whisky Show (17-18 May 19). Feedback from the select people who tried it solidified our thoughts that our Rum is going from strength to strength.
Batch 4, is 2 x 50L Port barrels, matured for 2.5 years, married and then finished in a first fill 100L Bourbon Barrel for 6 months. This gives an excellent balance of fruit, sweetness and spice.
The unique characteristics are made with Northern Rivers NSW Molasses and developed further with our own Jamaican style Dunder.
Relaxing on a tropical escarpment overlooking the beach, is beautiful. Sipping on this Rum is divine. Large Palm trees sway in the wind, delivering fresh Coconut aromas. It is relaxing in the shade of the rainforest fringe, but this Rum cools you perfectly.
As you sip more on this golden liquid, the sweetness of Butter Scotch builds in the mouth. When you inhale your next breath you take on fruit of black currant and dried plum. The oiliness of this liquid carries the spice smoothly.
