Gyle: 08241Brewery: Blackwell Rum
Tastefully luxurious and effortlessly stylish, Blackwell Rum is characteristically Jamaican, with a dark amber hue, and a slight spicy aroma of orange peel and tropical fruit spice. It also has a special funky edge, a kind of eclectic, toffee-like sweetness that brings something fresh to the genre: “the strongest hint there is of burnt coconut,” says Blackwell; and that flavour surely emerges, along with toasted oak and the lingering citrus, all with a very smooth delivery. “I think Jamaica's somehow blessed as an island. And that's why I insisted my Blackwell Rum be a dark, Jamaican rum, made in Jamaica.”
The key to Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum’s punchy style lies in the island's love of pot stills and long fermentation times; it is this method of production which gives this luxury rum not just added weight but a pungent intensity. Blackwell Rum blends effortlessly with other spirits or can be enjoyed neat, Chris Blackwell’s preferred favourite.
Tasting Note: A beautiful bright, dark bronze colour with red highlights. Smells deeply of Demerara sugar, molasses and treacle. In the mouth, the full-blown molasses comes across like cocoa bean and chocolate cake frosting, lasting long into the finish.
