Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I'm really glad not to be the only one to review this Whisky, no sorry, this Rum! I mean your nose will be speaking with a Rhum with the kind of alcoholic punch you can expect from a cask strength rum at 56%, but your mouth will be speaking with the beautiful and amazing bastard son of an Agricole Rhum and a Whisky from a Scottish Isla.
At the nose: wow alcohol is strong, dark, yes the bananas, but acetone too, slightly oaky.
At the mouth: it's hot, it fills your mouth with alcohol and flavour inundates both mouth and nose. A bit shy of bananas to be a WP, the liquorice is strong to me, salty note of liquorice, but hey? There's an elephant in the room? Am I the only one who had a doubt if this was a sip of Whisky or Rum? The oakiness, but most importantly the peaty oily taste typical of the Isla Whisky is all there and it's strong, forget the bananas, forget the tropical fruits, forget all, this is a great finish: a Rum born in Jamaica but raised on a Scottish Island.
good strength with taste of banana sweetness, warming spicy, vanilla, caramel and cognac.
Leathery with funky and fruitiness of papaya and jackfruit, buttery pineapple tart and dried bananas from cereals. Really great on nosing.
Funky and fruity jackfruit. Great touch of oiliness and acidity yet it doesn't carry the body of Hampden. Complex and very much enjoyable.
Nutty pistachio, warm honey, fruity longan yet dry. Long funky aroma which transfer to umami seaweed.
Nosing and finish tends to be stronger compare to tasting but it's still a great rum to sip on it's own or cigar.
Le nez est moins prononcé que ce qu’on pourrait attendre d’un jamaïcain, les fruits sont bien là (banane, poire) mais on est plutôt sur des notes de banane verte. Il y a un boisé, plutôt résineux mais bien intégré. En gros c’est un peu timide mais pas désagréable…
En bouche les fruits sont très présent et même si l’intégration de l’alcool est un peu manquée on discerne aussi de la coco, du cacao et du boisé toujours bien maitrisé.
La finale rajoute de l’abricot et une petite amertume sur le bois.
