J. Gow Fading Light Rum Bottling Note

Orkney’s only rum distillery, VS Distillers, named this bottle of pot still rum Fading Light after what is known locally as the grimleens, which is the eerie dusk that has inspired many tales of ghosts and spirits on the Scottish island.

This is an interesting edition of J. Gow rum, as it was matured in chestnut casks. Chestnut was chosen because it is more porous than oak, which means that the rum matures quicker. This is useful in a cold climate such as Orkney, where you'd usually expect a slow maturation process. J. Gow Fading Light Rum was bottled at 43% ABV without any additional sugar or colouring.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Estery dried fruits, vanilla and plenty of creamy nuttiness lead, with prickles of baking spice underneath.

J. Gow Fading Light Rum Reviews

Excellent rum

I bought this on the recommendation of a colleague and he didn't steer me wrong. This rum is perfect for a cold night in front of a fire or sipping during dessert after an amazing dinner. It's very smooth with a caramel start transitioning to deep vanilla. It would be worth it at a higher price but is a steal in the moderate range.
