Molasses based, with the aid of dunder and a long fermentation, this pot still rum is an example of the classic Vale Royal style. First produced in the early 20th century to supply rum concentrate for blending with local neutral spirits it is of the Wedderburn type with an ester level of between 300/500 ppm.
Pale in colour having been matured in well used oak Cognac casks it has a high toned nose, leading to a concentrated and mouth filling pallet. Fruit with only slight wood leads to a short but high powered finish. A really interesting example of this type of rum.
