2007 The Drunken Master SNK Samurai Showdown Foursquare 14 Year Old Single Cask 011 Cask Strength Barbados Rum (700ml)
If you are in Taiwan, The Drunken Master Whisky Bar in Kaohsiung has a following for its prolific collection. Evidently rum is not far behind. Several single barrel bottlings are now on offer. Cask #11 nicknamed 'Samurai Showdown' leaves a lasting impression, with powerful, complex aromatics evoking caramel fudge, dates, vanilla bean and roasted nuts, leading into fresher notes of raisins, cinnamon and orange spice cake; the alcohol balance at natural strength is breathtaking, managing feline composure in a slow, luxurious cascade of raw sugar, over-ripe banana, moist molasses cake, wild honey, cafe-creme and high-cocoa dark chocolate flavours that rebound over minutes. Released in collaboration with Japanese video game hardware and software company, 'SNK corporation', it's rum for the lucky few: 260 bottles are available for the world. Tasted from a 20ml sample. 57.2% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
