St Nicholas Abbey Rum 70cl
Nestled in the highlands of St Peter in Barbados is St Nicholas Abbey which was built in 1658 and has remained unchanged for the last 350 years. It is only one of three Jacobean mansions remaining in the Western Hemisphere.This old plantation house sits in over 400 acres of sugar cane fields and has been fully restored to its former glory by local architect and current owner, Larry Warren.
The rum is produced exclusively for the plantation by R. L. Seale. It is initially aged in oak Bourbon casks at 65% abv for the first 3 years, after which it is batched and re-barrelled into the same casks at bottle strength to be aged for a further 2 years at the Abbey.
This artisanal 5 year old is one of the finest Bajan rums.
The aged rum is hand-bottled straight from the barrel in an elegant glass decanter individually etched with an image of the St. Nicholas Abbey great house. The decanter is sealed with a mahogany cork topped with hand-embossed leather, symbolic of the island's first mahogany trees, planted on Cherry Tree Hill over 250 years ago.
The rum is deep amber in colour with sweet aromas on the nose of fudge, vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon. The palate is incredibly smooth with notes of dried fruits, oranges and spice, the finish is long and silky smooth. Overall, St Nicholas Abbey will be loved by rum aficionados as well as being a great introduction to the premium rum category for whisky and Cognac drinkers.
