Small Batch Pot Still Tasmanian Rum
Beer cask matured single cask single rum.
Traditional Pot Still Tasmanian Rum from Captain Bligh’s Brewstillery. Starting as a brewery more than 8 years ago, they moved forward with plans for the distillery about 4 years ago.
This rum is very unique and they have pioneered a style they call “cool climate” rum, as almost all rum is produced and matured in a tropical climate, and has significant quantities of sugar and or molasses added in before bottling. Captain Bligh’s have treated this spirit with the respect of single malt whisky, and have not added any additional sugars, allowing the spirit and the casks used to fully display their character.
Nose: fruity and creamy. Light notes of banana, caramelised pineapple and green apple.
Palate: fruity, with Werther’s original cream candy on the palate. Light and refreshing, with a good balance of sweetness, along with a striking malty character from the beer cask.
Finish: a persistent sweet, fruity note lingers, with some light oak spice.
This release is not one to be missed. Only 218 bottles produced.
