This month’s drop

Box 017, Shack attack

For this month’s box we have chosen some of the most popular rums at the moment in our sister bar “The Rum Shack” on Pollokshaw road in the Southside of Glasgow. We aren’t sure if there is any rhyme or reason as to the trends of rum consumption we see there other than the fact that they are all tasty. So, naturally we wanted to share the love with you. Enjoy!

Plantation Isle of Fiji

ORIGINABV.STYLE
Fiji40%Dark

THE SLINGER’S NOTES

Fijian rum is something we don’t get enough of in our opinion. It seems to blend a lot of stuff we like about other rums of the world – fruity like a Barbados rum, funky like a Jamaican rum. Isle of Fiji is versatile enough to exist happily in most favourite tipples, but we like ours neat!

DISTILLER’S NOTES

Nose : Initial notes of molasses, pear, and varnish. Later becomes fruitier and spicier on apple, banana, and gooseberry, also nutmeg and vanilla with a hint of smoke.
Palate : Rich and round, it follows the nose with vanilla fudge, honey, ginger and fruity notes of prune and coconut.

Angostura 1919

ORIGINABV.STYLE
Trinidad40%Golden

THE SLINGER’S NOTES

Light and very smooth, a gateway rum for many. It owes its namesake to a fire that destroyed the Government Rum Bon in 1932. Angostura’s master blender bought the charred casks, only to discover they had been filled in the year 1919. Enjoy this one with coke!

DISTILLER’S NOTES

Nose: Vanilla, caramel, burnt oak, and a bit of ginger.
Palate: Very sweet, creamy, caramel.

Flor de Cana 7

ORIGINABV.STYLE
Nicaragua40%Golden

THE SLINGER’S NOTES

An extremely affordable rum when you consider the quality of it. We actually prefer this rendition to some of the older offerings flor de cana have. Just goes to show you that older isn’t always better in the world of rum! We like to make rum iced tea with this stuff in the Summer.

DISTILLER’S NOTES

Nose: Aromas of toasted coconuts, vanilla and figs.
Palate: Honey and dark chocolate, with a long and smooth finish.
