Runaway Bay

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

Favourite Xmas Present!

Beautiful aroma. Quite punchy and flavoursome, as you would expect for a Jamaican, but loads of complexity. And did I mention the smell - wow.

A winter sipper

Luv this. Buy one as a warming sipper on cold winter evenings every year. Smell is amazing. Long, complex finish. Agree with MoM tasting notes.

My COVID comfort!

Took the plunge and got a bottle at the start of lockdown. It's been the perfect accompaniment to long winter evenings! Also tried it with tonic (as suggested by the person below) - bloody amazing! Who would have known! Rum & Tonic. But still feels wrong to mix sucha beautiful sipper.

I love the aroma

Love this rum. Could sit and smell it for hours. You really get the molasses without any of the artificial elements that so often get added in. Long, complex finish of grassy esters. Delicious.
