We have bottled this rum at different ages, with a Fino sherry finish, and now with the benefit of some time in Madeira wood. Nothing can overshadow the spirits unique style, that medicinal quality, a salty brine like flavour and long deep taste reminisant of Islay Malt Whisky all combine to show a totally very special rum of the highest quality.
This bottling in 2008 is the final selection we have to offer of this stock which has been finished in selected casks previously used to mature Malmsey Madeira.
The power of this rum is tamed slightly by the hint of sweetness on the nose; the colour has been darkened by the sweet wine soaked wood. The palate combines all the classic Rockley tones and flavours with a subtle roundness that follows through the long finish. This, we feel, you will either love or hate but will recognize it as something very special.
Enjoy over ice in a heavy tumbler with a cigar of your choice.
