Kill Devil, Jamaica Clarendon Pot Still 14YO (700ml)
Kill Devil Single Cask Rum,
Jamaica Clarendon Pot Still 14YO
Pot distilled in 2007 at the Clarendon Estate in Jamaica, this rum joins the Kill Devil range of indie bottlings from Hunter Laing. It was treated to 14 years of maturation in a single cask, which eventually released an outturn of 256 cask strength bottles.
Tasting Notes: A wealth of fruit with grilled banana and pineapple followed by treacly tobacco, and sweet baking spice. Hefty oak rests at the core, with yet more layers of tropical fruit.
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.
