Admiral Rodney Officer's Releases No. 1 Port Cask Finish Rum
The Officer’s Releases is a limited edition series that pays tribute to Admiral Rodney, a well-recognized British naval officer who distinguished himself in 1782 during one of the most memorable battles in the Caribbean, “The Battle of the Saintes”. The first edition of the series, Admiral Rodney Officer’s Releases N°. 1, is an artful blend in the tradition of Saint Lucian rum. This limited edition is distilled and matured in the tropical climate of Saint Lucia and expertly composed by Master Blender Evanius Harris.
DISTILLATION: Admiral Rodney Officer’s Releases n ° 1 begins with rums extracted from the lowest extraction plate of our “Coffey Still”, allowing for a magnificent body and balance of aromas that intensify and become more complex during aging.
AGING: The rum was placed into ex-Bourbon oak casks in 2006 and matured for 13 years, followed by a finishing period in ex-Port barrels for 9 months.
TASTING NOTES: Bright mahogany hue in the glass. On the nose, there is an exotic combination of dried prunes, spicy vanilla, and toasted oak. The palate is intense with candied fruit, dark chocolate, licorice, and tobacco. The integrated oak gives definition and balance to an extended complex finish.
