Signature Blend #2 Jamaica & Guyana
42% || That Boutique-y Rum Company
Here’s the second Signature Blend from That Boutique-y Rum Company, and this stuff makes a mouthwatering Mai-Tai! Developed with Pete Holland (who you’ll know from The Floating Rum Shack), this terrific expression is made from a combination of particularly rich Guyanese rum and some wonderfully funky Jamaican rums, resulting in a flavour profile you’ll want to return to again and again. Luckily, you’ll be able to do so, as the Signature Blend series will be continuous releases from the Boutique-y bunch! Ideal!
Nose: Through oily walnuts, rich molasses, dark chocolate, oaky tannins and spicy nutmeg there are pitted Medjool dates, raisins, papaya and banana bread.
Palate: More woody spice, a hint of engine oil and sweet tobacco makes way for coconut husk, juicy pineapple and roasted apricot. An underlying note of sugarcane is present among darker notes of game meat, coffee beans and returning dark chocolate, before herbal notes of black tea and eucalyptus emerge.
Finish: Salted caramel, tropical fruit and drying oak.
Overall: Dark, deep and refined, this is one delightful blend. The mightiest of Mai Tais awaits.
