Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
43% ABV. Nose: Very interesting. Faint astringency quickly vanishes. Rather briny, a good bit of funk, and a melange of fruit (mango, banana, cherry). A bit more like an agricole than a traditional. Or even a Jamaican. Touch of cream and bubblegum, but magically, not enough to derail the experience. The fruit almost reminds me of Prichard's Crystal, but is not terrible like Prichard's. It also reminds me a bit of a 4yo Clement Cask Collection I have. There's a hint of the florality of Denizen Merchant's Reserve. Enticing qualities of a young Port Mourant. And that Jamaican funk. the palate is dry and briny with a medium-short finish.
That nose... what a glorious nose. Tasted blind, I might have pegged this as being from Martinique, Jamaica, or Guyana—not Scotland! This juice is super impressive for what is likely a completely unaged rum. The only thing that bothers me is when I consider how much of this outstanding rum gets infused and sold as its Spiced counterpart. (It's likely the Spiced sells better than the White given the popularity of spiced rum in the UK.) Fine. But this rum should be appreciated for how good it really is. If I lived in the UK, I would make this a staple in my bar. (Alas.) I hope Spirit of Glasgow continues to distill great rum, that their profile increases, and that perhaps they have an aged expression or two on the shelves before too long.
