Killowen Small Batch Dark Rum
A born and bred Irish Rum. Fermented onsite at Killowen from 50% blackstrap molasses and 50% Sugar only. The wash is distilled by Killowen’s flame-fed copper pot stills and worm-tubs, the first still uses a copper thumper keg which acts as another half distillation, hence the bottle stating, 2.5 times distilled. Solera method cask ageing was chosen for this dark rum using a range of casks. The distillate was first laid down in a series of 6 ex-bourbon 50-liter firkins, then a PX Sherry Cask, and finally in heavily charred Cabernet Sauvignon casks. Like all Killowen spirits, this distillate is a cut above all other quality rums. The focus on pot still distillation and cask ageing is evident in a viscous, well-balanced, spicy, heavy, and molasses-led flavor that acknowledges its raw ingredients and cask ageing method. Abv. 55%, 500ml bottle.
