Stone Pine Distillery Dead Man's Drop Black Spiced Rum (700ml)

New South Wales, AUSTRALIA
$79. 99
$959.88 Dozen
ABV: 40%
A marriage of Stone Pine's rum with orange peel, vanilla and Australian native flavours of Ringwood and cinnamon myrtle. The label celebrates Bathurst's Bicentenary, and is inspired by infamous bushrangers, The Ribbon Gang. Ten of the gang were hung in 1830 in Bathurst's first public hanging.

Tasting note: Deep sienna brown. Lifted aromas redolent of fresh-sliced fruit cake show no dimunition after ample exposure. Aeration accents glace cherry and hints of liquorice strap. Slightly let down by the delivery which echoes the purity of the aroma but comes across a little flat. The finish redeems the mid palate as liquorice bullet and mild ginger biscuit flavours add some vibrancy. Arguably more like a liqueur than a spiced rum - enjoyable nonetheless. 40% Alc./Vol.
