For this rum, we head to Brazil and the Epris distillery. This single barrel of nine-year-old rum has been bottled by Danish company 1423 World Class Spirits and was released in 2020 as part of the bottler’s Single Barrel Selection range. The nose gives blackcurrant, menthol, rhubarb, wildflower honey and cinnamon balls. These flavours develop on the palate with red travel sweets, Big Red chewing gum and hints of new-oak vanilla. The finish is blackcurrant leaf, cloves, white pepper, oak spice and ginger.
