Spirit of Derbyshire Spiced Rum - 42% VOL
This sophisticated blend of 3-5-year-old rums from Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, are blended in dark toasted oaks and spiced to perfection. This smooth rum is then laid down in Tennessee Bourbon barrels to give that extra richness and Caribbean flavour that you only get with time.
A fragrant, fruit-driven nose with notes of ripe roasted pineapple and banana. A gradual build up of baking spices makes the palate warming; the flavours are balanced by sweet sugarcane notes. Oily and complex with a lingering sweetness – a great expression.
