Worthy Park Special Cask Series Madeira 2010

Worthy Park Special Cask Series

One of the two first releases of a double-matured product, 100% aged at the distillery. Distilled in 2010, this rum was aged in once used, American White Oak Ex-Bourbon casks for 8 years. This was followed by 2 years in an Ex-Madeira casks for added depth and complexity and bottled at 45% alc./vol.

Tasting Notes: Dark brown with a tinge of orange, this rum is very pleasing in glass. Sweet caramel, hint of vanilla and few lingering spices and oak awaits you on the nose and its somehow very warming and comforting. Sipping on this rum, you are initially met with a natural sweetness with those caramel and hint of vanilla getting mixed with a slight edge from the spicy notes. These spicy notes provide a little burn which carries through to the finish. As one continues savoring this rum, a more tropical fruit sweetness interplays with these spicy notes and at the finish, a more acidic begins to creep in, leaving a slight bitterness at the end.
