Cask No. R11.14
Either madness or brilliance - it is remarkable how often those two traits coincide. Aromas of glue and pine sap, pineapple dipped in white gloss paint, fruity funky earthiness – let us walk the plank and take a sip! An insane hit of flavour and power, like being pounded by a barrage of hot shots (cannonball that are heated before firing) from all three decks fired by a Man-of-War! The burning timbers we tried to douse with saltwater as the fragrant wood smoke engulfed the whole ship, yet we managed to get away. After five years in an ex-bourbon barrel, we transferred this rum into a refill bourbon cask which previously matured peaty whisky from Speyside.

About Cask R11.14 Hot shots:
This single cask rum marries the Spanish ‘Ron’ style with British style in seamless fashion – Spanish styled rums are typically column-distilled, offering lighter color and flavour, whilst British styled rums are traditionally pot-distilled, yielding darker color and richer flavour. Here, the rum is 100% pot-distilled yet retains silky bright fruit character (Spanish style) and simultaneously delivering dark ripeness and ester funk (British style) in the glass! You're in for a rare equatorial treat with this bold spirit!
