The perfect marriage of mature Irish Single Malt and exquisite Caribbean Rum. This exceptional whiskey has been masterfully finished in only eight speciality casks from the lost Port Mourant Estate Distillery in Guyana. Casks which previously nurtured an incredible rare 41 year old Demerara Rum. Presented in an exquisite collector’s box, this whiskey boasts layers of sweet molasses, dark muscovado sugar, vanilla, stewed fruits, candied orange, crème brȗlée and banana bread.
Region: Irish Whiskey
Appearance – Pure liquid gold meets wild meadow honey.
Nose – The first impression is equilibrium, the balance between spirit, rum and wood notes is exceptional.
That subtle layering of sweet molasses over the magnificently clean barley leads into rich, oily, viscous aromas, a richness of red toffee apples, pear drops giving way to baked pear, sweet vanilla crème anglaise, and warm apple strudel. That same warmth that speaks to the cask strength of this whiskey, but with strength rather than burn.
There is no suggestion of youth anywhere on the nose, this whiskey speaks well of its age and maturity.
Palate – Perfect texture, sweet oak layered with dark treacle molasses, thick dark muscovado sugar with sweet wood vanilla. Stewed fruits, candied orange, verging on marmalade, with hints of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and luxurious rum ice cream. Then comes the merest suggestion of smoke from the barrel char, and of old sun dried leather that adds even more richness, depth and complexity to the whiskey.
Finally those rum casks take over, with sticky toffee pudding, well done crème brȗlée, blue mountain latte, banana bread and rum ice cream carrying through to the finish. This is a whiskey that responds to warmth and develops in the glass.
Finish – Rich, oily and viscous, those sugars combine with the malts natural oils to coat the mouth quite sublimely with pure molasses, treacle and buttery barley.
Then there’s cream soda , candied orange, more wonderful banana bread and dark rum, and all the way through you have that perfect, breath-taking intertwingling of the molasses, the malt and that sweet oak, that reminds you in its last long lingering moments of the 18 years this whiskey has been waiting for this reveal, and so defines this magnificent whiskey.
