Holmes Cay: Belize Travelers Distillery 15 Years Old (2005)

This rum was distilled in 2005 and topically aged in ex-bourbon barrels for a full 15 years! Bottled at a wonderful 61%ABV.

On the nose you get oak, orange/lemon zest, ginger, raspberry chocolate, coffee, tobacco, mint and maple syrup.

It's rich on the nose but also on the palate; I get caramel, brown sugar, maple syrup, oak, strawberry, pepper and it's a little drying.

The finish is burnt meat, oak, dry, more maple syrup and nuts.

I find this rum has some similarities to a bourbon with dense brown sugar, maple syrup and oak notes. The tasting group tended to like this one the most, and noting some similarities to Foursquare (I agree - definitely different but this rum is shooting in a similar direction).

Overalls fantastic rum - close to a 10 for me, but not quite.
