What a fantastic rum.. but first a bit of history. Clifton Hall on Barbados had fallen into a state of disrepair when it was bought by Massimo and Karen Franchi , he's a football players agent ( so , loaded ). They renovated the property at great expense and to celebrate the project approached Richard Searle at Foursquare for a special rum.. and this is it !! 12 yrs old and bottled at the standard 40% ( unfortunately) Would of been a 10 from me at 46%. A lovely darkish golden colour in the glass , quite an strong ethanol aroma at the start but soon gives way to mild smoke , toffee , caramel and nuts. On sipping a wave of sweetness at first then more depth and complexity from the nuts and fruits in the background. Beautifully single blended rum , I love it.. almost impossible to find but if you do , grab it !
Sugar: Estimated at 5 GPL. Purchased this a duty free and while I found it to be a good rum but I wouldn't purchase a second one. It is similar to other Bajan rums (Mt Gay and Doorly's come to mind). A bit too much burn for my liking and it tasted too much like bourbon for me. It's a good rum, however, I was looking for something smoother.
