Professor Cornelius Ableforth's Rumbullion Spiced Rum (700ml)
$94. 99 Bottle
A spiced rum, based on the full-bodied, high-proof Caribbean rums the seafaring fraternity would have enjoyed centuries ago. Spices include Madagascan vanilla and a good dose of orange peel, finished with a handful of cinnamon, cloves and just a hint of cardamom. The label bears an illustration of a Navy grog tub with the words: “The Queen, God Bless Her”. Like its sister spirit from the same company, "Bathtub Gin", the bottle is wrapped in crinkled brown paper, wound with twine and sealed with black wax. Enjoy it neat, or with ice and a squeeze of fresh lime. Tasting note: Viscous deep amber / copper colour. Medium fresh aromas of baking spice (think clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) over vanilla and hints of banana cake. A touch of orange zest balances the sugars. Plush with appealingly spicy flavours of ginger bread, orange zest and a warming cinnamon / clove / cardamom finish showing good staying power. Nicely balanced with well defined spice input. 42.6% Alc./Vol.
