A rich and luxurious cask, bottled at 48%, this was just the perfect strength, and shows how exceptional Penny Blue sherry single casks can be.
Colour: Deep, dark sherry.
Profile: Balanced, luxurious, an exceptional sherry cask.
Nose: Gourmet and rich, this rum is an explosion of rich sherry oak. An abundance of ripe fruits, most precisely on prunes, cherries, and sweet grapes. Dessert notes are also well represented in this dram, almond paste and marzipan are present and also other patisserie notes and marmalade. A touch of spice with some smoky tobacco aromas at the end.
Palate: Sweetness is also very present on the palate, which is characteristic of this type of rum. An explosion of taste, including ripe fruits, patisserie flavours and treacle sugar coating the entire tongue.
Finish: A good kick but no excessive alcohol, this nectar is as full-bodied as you would want it to be. The finish is long, echoing everything just experienced on the nose and palate. Flavours continue to evolve even a few minutes after the sip.
