The 1731 British West Indies Blend is a small batch blend that combines diverse rums from three islands : the intense flavor of younger, traditionally distilled Pot Still rums from Jamaica, Column Still and heavier Pot Still rums from Barbados aged in oak barrels, and beautifully aged Column Still rums from Trinidad.
This eXtra Old blend combines rums of various ages to achieve a unique blended character, so it does not have an Age Statement. The rums in this British West Indies blend range from 0 to 8 years in age.
Colour: Rather straw like, suggesting that the younger elements of this rum outweigh the older ones.
Nose: Well balanced subtle top note of Jamaican funk, sweet cane juice and a slight sweet molasses aroma. And with hints of barrel spices and oak that sits dried pineapple and cocoa.
Palate: Vibrant and spicy. A hit of spice with a heavy Trini influence. Toasted coconut, vanilla and zingy citrus zest.
Finish: Medium-bodied caramelised nuts and liquorice finished.
