Stolen 6 Year Old Overproof Rum 375ml
STOLEN discovered Overproof at a historic, family-run distillery in Jamaica thatís over 250 years old, renowned for making some of the best heavy pot still rums in the world. It is the last of a 6-year aged, pot still rum made using hand harvested sugar cane grown by local farmers. The sugar cane mash is fermented using a proprietary yeast strand that is cultured in outdoor wood vats. The mash ferments for seven days in a selection of the distilleryís 50 different traditional cedar tanks. Utilizing mountain rain water collected by the estateís own rain water retention system, the rum is distilled using very old, traditional pot stillsÖ the same as those found in Scotland to make high flavor single malt whiskies. The distilled rum is then carefully matured in ex-whiskey barrels.
The result is a distinctively smooth 123 proof dark bronze rum with a flavor and profile that is nothing short of amazing. The nose is not the wet grass one might expect but rather offers a dose of white and black pepper spice married with charred oak and ripe banana. On the palate, there is a hint of charred vanilla along with notes of tangerine, banana, and pear. The rum has medium viscosity and lovely long legs, leaving a luscious light coat in your mouth. This is a very limited release.
When itís over, itís over. And out.
