Honest Rum Review
I was perusing the Binny's site to order a few bottles, and I came across a rum manufacturer who ages their rum in unusual casks; Chenin Blanc casks, Port casks, Syrah casks, etc. The review from Wine Enthusiast tickled my funny bone and I thought I'd share.....
Murray-McDavid Hampdon 13 Year Old Port Cask Finished Rum
"The uninviting aroma includes scents of sautйed onion, cigarette smoke, smelly cheeses and vinyl. The palate improves with flavors of tobacco leaf, sea salt and oak; the midpalate offers tastes of beeswax, lip salve, popcorn, palm oil and ruby Port. Finish is oily with tastes of wax, tobacco, Port and seaweed. A curiously fascinating oddball." 85-89 pts.
