Scratch — Patience British Rum
British Distilled Rum
t’s taken ages to get us to this point. Finally, we have a British rum, made from Scratch that has been matured for a significant number of years. It has been double distilled, with the rum matured in whisky casks between distillations. It was transferred to ex-bourbon casks and new oak casks where it was aged for three and two years, respectively. This was then blended to create our first Patience Rum.
It tastes delicious. The nose has hints of toffee, rich fudge and vanilla.
On the palate, a gorgeous mixture of sweet and spice imparted through the two barrel types used, with a long sumptuous finish.
This was awarded 86 points and secured a bronze medal from the IWSC – the first time a British rum has been recognised in the aged category.
