A very traditional old-style rum, this single-estate rum from New Grove is molasses-based and 100% natural, with no chillfiltering, no additives, no sugar and no colourant. Distillation is at 94%, and it is aged at 65% volume until preselection. When this cask was originally selected, the distillery was asked to bottle the cask at 48% ABV. They accommodated the request, however the bottling of the cask fell through. The rum already reduced to 48% was then immediately placed back in the cask in October 2019. NWW selected this cask in December 2020, it had exceptional fruity notes, a superb mouthfeel and balance! An opportunity not to be missed, a true gem from New Grove!
