Berry Bros & Rudd, XO Caribbean Rum (Trinidad)
"This edition of The Selected by Berry's XO Caribbean Rum comes from Trinidad's Caroni Estate distillery, which is sadly now closed, leaving just this small piece of liquid Caribbean history," says a Berry's spokesperson. "This single estate, single age (12-year-old) rum is some of the last ever produced here." Oily on the nose, with new leather, summer fruits, brown sugar and ginger. The palate is smooth, fruity and notably spicy, while the finish dries slowly with delicate tannins. Final notes of bananas, butter and linseed oil. 46.0% ABV, 70cl
Official Tasting Notes: This deep golden rum brims with sweet, rich fruity aromas countered by zesty lemon and lime, some treacle toffee and cloves. The wonderfully succulent honeyed palate delivers waves of flavour. A little oak shines through to offer some balancing tannin.
