Runaway Bay Bottling Note

Here we have Runaway Bay, a rum named for a beach on the north coast of Jamaica. The pot still rum brings together rum from four distilleries on the Island, including high ester spirit from Trelawny and rum from Vale of Lluidas. It was then rested in a pair of barrels for at least 11 years, before being bottled in a limited release of 773 bottles. What's more, the glass is made from recycled bottles, topped off with a real cork stopper. A great introduction to high ester rum!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Heaps of ripe, ester-y fruit, namely banana and pineapple, along with coconut cream and unmistakable funk.

Palate: Tinned pineapple and freshly cut grass, along with dried fruit and oaky caramel.

Finish: Fried banana and ripe esters linger on a dry and peppery finish.

Runaway Bay Reviews

Hair on your chest

Bought this for my Dad, who loves rum. Says it will put hair on your chest but its the best he's ever had!

I'd like to Runaway with it

I usually drink whiskies and enjoy drinking them neat to try to identify the different flavours. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this rum. You'll have to try it out yourself. I ended up buying two bottles - one to enjoy with friends and one as a collector's piece!

My new favourite alcohol

I have never though of myself as a run person - but goddamn this rum (on its own, or my personal favourite - with fresh lime and ginger ale) is so incredibly delicious. It tastes like my time in Jamaica - could not recommend more highly

All the depth of Jamaica in a bottle.

Deeper, longer and richer than any rum I’ve tasted, with a real sense of place. The rum that’s got me into rum - highly recommended.

First class rum. Subtle yet complex. A luxury whisky replacement!

Wonderful rum! The smell alone as you open the bottle is enough to make you glad to own a bottle(s). The flavour is subtle yet complex, and doesn't feel forced. It's as much a sensation as it is a taste and it stays on your tongue. For me, Runaway Bay Rum has replaced a luxury whisky I'd been loyal to for a long time. I enjoy encouraging friends to try and have never yet been disappointed by their reaction.

Fantastically quaffable

Fantastic and easily drinkable Jamaican rum. Very drinkable on the rocks, as well as with tonic and lime. The smell is incredible - can very happily just sit their enjoying the aroma.

Amazing aroma

Amazing bottle. Beautiful intro to the different elements of Jamaican rum. The high esters really come out but are not overpowering at all. Really balanced all the way to the finish. And the slowly starts to fill the room as soon as you pop the cork. Would strongly recommend.
