Review #1091 | Rum Review #61 – Moneymusk 9yr The Ultimatum 2007 Jamaican Rum

The Schtick: This is an independent bottling of rum distilled at Moneymusk in 2007 that is bottled under The Ultimatum label after aging for 9 years. 

Distiller: Moneymusk

Bottler: The Ultimatum

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: 9 Years

Nose: Sweet mango, pineapple, vanilla. Rich Dole fruit syrup, light funk and some caramel. Lots of nice ripe banana. Overall, on the lighter side, but an enticing nose. 

Taste: Thin mouth feel. No real heat. Caramel, honey, light esters and pear. Faint ham note, mango, some plantain. 

Finish: Medium length finish, some mild heat. Less sweet here but fruity and floral. Honey, apples, light mango, faint banana.

Overall: Honestly, this wasn’t bad, but it was thin and disjointed. A little longer finish and a bit richer mouth feel and we’d be in business on this one. That said, I wish I had more of this so I could play with it in some cocktails. 

Thanks for reading!
