Penny Blue Batch 7 XO Rum (700ml)
Doug McIvor and Jean-Francois Koenig at Berry Bros are delving beyond whisky and into rum. In the Penny Blue batch series, each edition is estate matured and is, by definition, rare and finite. While there is continuity in overall style to retain the rich complexity that makes this single estate rum a real expression of its Mauritian terroir, each release will come with its own personality. In Batch #007, the Medine Distillery (est 1926) has produced a fresh and balanced molasses-based style with a focus on generous fruits and smoky wood spices. Matured in whisky, sherry and cognac casks and with an outturn limited to 6000 bottles globally, it comes bottled at 41.8% without chill filtration.
