SEA WYNDE - Pot Still RumFine Jamaica Rum
The unmistakably juicy and unique aroma of jackfruit is the first to show, underlining the trademark pungency of traditional naval pot still rum. This fruitiness is lifted by a sweet oiliness not only molassed, but possessing a slightly sharp toffee apple complexity. Meanwhile, the oak, revealing some good age, offers a subtle bourbony feel. All these aromas are layered, yet so vivid that they intertwine for a truly beguiling three-dimensional complexity. Unquestionably the most complex nose to be found in any commercial rum in the world.
Fat, fulsome and sweet from the very moment it hits the mouth, the oils coat and lubricate every taste bud. An enormous raisiny, Christmas puddling fruitiness ensures a mouth watering start before the most delicate medium roast Jarva/Blue Mountain coffee richness formulates as well as soft honey and licquorice. In the background, a controlled explosion of pepper spice adds even further depth.
Some hints of vanilla and vaguely bourbony oak remind you of the age while that soft but limpet-like oiliness guarantees a finish of almost unbelievable length and unfathomable complexity. As the intensity fades slightly, the jackfruit reappears with the toffee-fudge and dovetails with the honey and a vague saltiness. A sweet finale in keeping with the nose and main thrust of the rum, but the oak ensures the bittersweet balance that the complexity that has gone before demands.
"Though there is a pungency on both the aroma and the palate, the honeyed backbone and weight of oaky coffee guarantees extraordinary depth and complexity. A connoisseur's tot that will re-define people's perception of rum." Jim Murray, Whiskey Writer.
For centuries, the finest rums in the world were made in pot stills. This costly and time-consuming method produces rum with rich and complex flavours. Traditionally, pot still rums from several different origins were married together to produce the most coveted rums. Rum made by marrying only pure pot still rums had all but vanished.
Jamaica and Guyana have long been home to the world's best rums. Sea Wynde is an astonishing marriage of five pure pot still rums from these countries. This elegant recipe produces a rum of honeyed richness and subtle complexity, which distinguishes it from all other rums. It is the only rum in the world made entirely from pot still rums from the Caribbean and South America. These rums combine to create Sea Wynde's signature smooth, full-bodied taste.
