Diamond Distillery "Port Mourant" 2008 Rum, Liquid Treasures

  • This wee baby from Port Mourant’s famous double wooden pot still. Looks like there’s the esc… I mean the wife of the POTUS on the label, no? Colour: white wine. Nose: great to have this after an Uitvlugt. This one’s rather fruitier, with pears for example, but that may be both the younger age and the higher strength. Other than that and so far, clams, oysters, rollmops and kimchi. With water: very dry and salty, we’re almost nosing a plate of oysters. Some nail polish too.

    Mouth (neat): absolutely excellent, but very strong. Williams pears spirit mixed with ashes and seawater. With water: same feelings, but hold on, did someone pour some young Lagavulin this time?

    Finish: long, rather waxier this time. Some kind of very salty Clynelish? Gritty olive oil in the aftertaste. Comments: this one was a little more challenging, or less ‘evident’, but it’s still a high-flyer.

    SGP:462 - 86 points.
