A single cask of rum from New Yarmouth, distilled in 1994 and bottled free of dilution or any additives in 2023. Cask #435059 was aged for 25 years tropically, with the remainder in Europe.
On the nose, a rush of sweet milk chocolate and funky guava. The palate shows off a funky banana brownie, teak-like tannin, warm fruitcake spices, and a tropical baked pie note. It hangs around with drying and rich notes of tropical hardwood cabinetry. The spice notes are surprisingly approachable, giving softer notes than you might expect after 25 years of aging in the tropics.
Due to pandemic-related delays this rum was not bottled in September 2021 as expected. It further aged in cask in the Fine Drams warehouse in Denmark until bottling took place in April 2023.
350 bottles were produced.
