Kill Devil, Belize Traveller's Rum 15YO (700ml)
Kill Devil Single Cask Rum,
Belize, Traveller's Distillery
A tremendous rum from the Travellers Distillery in Belize, bottled up from a single cask for Hunter Laing's indie Kill Devil series. This expression was distilled in a column still in 2006 and filled into a cask where it remained for the next 15 years. A total of 237 bottles was produced, at a mighty cask strength of 64.1% ABV.
Official Tasting Notes: Roasted, earthy coffee, treacly dark sugar with toasted nuts, and a smidge of zesty wax. Bold oak welcomes sweet red fruits with subtle notes of herbaceous tobacco.
About Kill Devil:
In the 17th and 18th centuries, islanders referred to their locally made distillates as Kill Devil. Whilst today many of the old superstitions have gone, the Caribbean is still the source of many exotic rums.
The Kill Devil series showcases the quality and diversity of rum from the Caribbean and further afield – single casks are specially selected for shipment to Scotland, to be carefully and traditionally bottled by hand. The single cask bottlings are presented in gift tubes and the rums are bottled at 46% or at natural cask strength – also referred to as navy strength in the rum world – not chill-filtered and without colouring.
