2013 Habitation St Etienne 6 Year Old Kilchoman Finish Agricole Rhum (500ml)
$165. 00 Bottle
Respected argicole producer, HSE are running a program of Scotch whisky barrel finished rums with an emphasis on Islay. Previous bottlings have conjured aromas akin to "...ripe bananas eaten on a fisherman’s boat, somewhere between Islay and Ireland, Islay scallops flambéed with old rum, Loch Gruinart oysters seasoned with sugarcane juice. Or, indeed, wild thyme in brine and salty liquorice." (whiskyfun.com) After five years of tropical ageing, this one was finished for five months in an x-Kilchoman barrel. Expect peaty aromas and flavours enriched with tropical fruits, candied orange, golden tobacco and a spicy, fruit soaked finish. 44% Alc./Vol. 4100 bottles.
