Grenadian rum distilled in 1996 at the Westerhall distillery. This was selected by Jim McEwan and aged at the Bruichladdich whisky distillery before a finish in Château Margaux casks. Bottled in 2009 as part of a release of 1,600 bottles.
Nose: Quite whiskey-ish again, but more rye than bourbon this time – biscuity, dry rye with a hint of good quality cheddar and toffee apple. We have to admit this is an amazingly complex and curious nose with everything from pineapple to peanut brittle and kirsch. Then there’s something not unlike Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the peppery flavour you get with it.
Palate: This is very sweet initially, but it quickly clobbers you with a left-hook of rye spice. A little bit of the taste of an unlit cigar, and perhaps the cedar too. Something akin to a mix of old people’s clothes and greengages (we’ve never tasted old people’s clothes, but reckon this is pretty near what it’d be like. Also a faint note of samphire and sulphur. Worth noting we do like this, it’s just very, very odd!
Finish: More of the taste of old clothes, and hints of herbs and charred oak, a little note of seafood too!

This is a very bad rum but more than average whisky full of orchard fruits
