It’s definitely an interesting mix of bourbon and sweet, with a long spicy finish. For me it’s just too much, I don’t want to have to add a cube or water to get the flavours, and without it’s just hard to get much. For ‘hard-core’ folks, I could see how they really like it.
R. Seal have once again succeeded!
I have been searching for this latest release for a wile and finally last week I got my bottles delivered to the door by a very good friend🥰
Just tried it out and this is a amazing rum and one of the nicest ECS rum.
Full of caramel, flowers, orange and nice spices in the nose.
When tasting the sweetness comes first with sea salt, raspberry candy, grapes and vanilla.
In the tail comes a lot of spices, especially pepper and then a stroll oak taste!
Really recommend this beauty!
First thing is it’s a bit early to be sampling 61% rum for me, thus a taming cube. This hits you square up on first sip then backs down slowly and keeps on going with depth. For me the Isonomy was magical and I luckily have some left which is pure magic. I have to back this one down a bit, I know it’s Ex Cognac but it still reminds me of 2008,2009,2010 with a very full body. Bourbon notes. I paid a hefty price $179 bottle bought 2 from California just to make sure I got it as Isonomy was really hard to come by. Solid rum if you had not had other expressions likely a 9.
Combination Bourbon and cognac barels it’s Ok for me.
61% - strong alcohol kick I overcame with a little help of a small ice cube.
Tastes just like the normal ex-bourbon but with a hint of sweetness at the end (likely because of the cognac finish), feels like more burn than the foursquare ex bourbon though. Rougher than expected even if its 61%abv
So this tasting and review may admittedly be slightly biased as the conditions were incredibly optimum....which may have added to the experience. I tasted this rum while on vacation in Barbados at the FS Distillery while on a private tour with Richard Seale. This rum is amazing on its own and can stand toe to toe with the best out there (which is why I brought 5 bottles home). This bottling is part of their ecs series, which varies on casting from Bourbon, cognac, sherry, and others for flavoring. In my humble opinion, the ex-bourbon and ex-congac cask bottles always stand out as the best......and this 14 yr bottle is no different. It is very new as of this writing and most don't, can't, or won't get it yet. I'm lucky as I went straight to the source. When it is available, leaving it on the store shelf would be a mistake!
