CASK No. R2.17


Swaggering bravado

Age 12 Years
Date Distilled 25th Apr 2008
Cask Type 2nd Fill Bourbon Barrel
Region Guyana
Outturn 1 of 235 bottles
ABV 61.40%


We were astonished by the swaggering bravado of this Guyana rum; the nose had blackcurrant jam, leather, sugar-coated fennel seeds, pastel de nata, stewed prunes, red liquorice, banana liqueur mixed with calvados and the aftermath of a Bunsen burner accident. The palate had the intense sweetness of nut brittle, cinnamon toast, caramelised banana, desiccated coconut sweetie tobacco, sugar-coated fennel seeds and honey and menthol Tunes. Adding water turned the nose to a slab of ripe pineapple wrapped in a tobacco leaf. The palate found spiced dates, dark toffee and spun sugar – the whole experience definitely crying out for companionable cigar.
