The Schtick: This is a traditional pot still rum that is distilled at Worthy Park in Jamaica and then imported to the states and partially aged in Moscatel barrels. It is aged for 6 years in Jamaica before spending some unreleased quantity of time aging in Moscatel casks, first fill, in the States.


Distiller: Worthy Park

Bottler: Dr. Bird

ABV: 50% ABV

Age: 6 years (Aged in Jamaica, Finishing Time Uncertain)

Source: Sample


Nose: Sweet banana, caramel, butterscotch, funky but not meaty.

Taste: Thick, rich. Sweet sugar, ripe banana and guava, rich funkiness, maple. The moscatel is doing super interesting things here.

Finish: Long, sweet and rich. Nice and funky without being overbearing.

Overall: This is really good, definitely unique. I really enjoyed it, and I plan to pick up a bottle soon.

Thanks for reading!
