Old Salt Rum

Old Salt Rum is produced by the English Spirit Distillery, and we mean that very literally. It's one of only a few rums distilled in England - no spirit brought in from far off lands makes its way into this one! It's made from pure cane molasses, which is fermented and then triple distilled in copper pot stills, and then the spirit is matured in English oak barrels before bottling at 42% ABV. It takes its name from the Old Salt Depot, where the distillery used to call home. No salt added here (though it'd probably pair very well with some sort of salted caramel pudding...).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Rich treacle and smooth caramel form a sweet aroma.

Palate Cocoa powder, vanilla and syrup pudding.

Finish The finish is a rich concoction of treacle tart and vanilla ice cream.

Overall A big toffee'd beast with delicious syrupy notes.

Reviews for Old Salt Rum
A joy.
The nicest sipping rum I've ever had - exceptionally smooth.

A rum that must be tried
Everything I'd hoped it would be. The molasses gives it a very bold profile in smell and taste. Personally there's a very definite Christmas cake similarity there for me, alongside the treacle and cocoa. Would have been grateful for an extra 20cl in the bottle though!

Naff as a battered hat
Smells like paint, tastes like paint-stripper. Don't bother; buy Pusser's or Rumbullion instead.

Not to our liking
Not what was expected. Both love rum however this must be an acquired taste. It was the worst rum ever tasted.

Tried this in Hong Kong
Just tried this bottle in Hong Kong, really stood out from the crowd, a very english approach in a sticky toffee pudding sort of way, and truly memorable. I Think its my new favourite!

Salt Rum
I would say more a hot peppery taste leading to a heavy rich rum aroma and texture. It manages to intensify the effect both on pallate and effect. Impressed, a unique flavour.

Old Salt Yum
Truly delicious. I don't like rum or dark spirits at all but we were seduced by the bottle and tried it over ice. Wonderful honeyed warm flavour. Do try it.
