Cask No. R10.1The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Cask No. R10.1
Vegetarians beware as this is a meaty rum that packs a punch like a butcher’s wooden hammer. As you’re being hit on the palate like pianist bashing out a concerto, the woody notes linger long after that first sip. But once it has been opened by touch of water the wood & spicy peppers, make way for strawberries and cream, soft buttered wood shavings, dried raisins, fruit & nuts with a hint of dried vanilla pods. It was like someone playing dark Trinidadian carnival music in my mouth, in E minor of course.
Drinking tip: Neat from a warm glass or add a touch of water for a different tune.
