Infinity Spirits The Royal Cane Cask Company St. Lucia 2000 John Dore 2000 22yr 49,6%

RX15563 Good Pot Still Rum Single Cask Under 250€
“Fruity, sweet yet spicy St. Lucia rum, enjoyable, but lacks panache.”

The Royal Cane Cask Company St. Lucia 2000 John Dore is a unique independent bottle offering a warm, spicy touch, marked by natural sweetness. With a woodsy, herbal aroma and smoky undertones, it presents a distinct flavor of oak, tobacco and a hint of bitterness. It features an enticing fusion of fruity flavors, unusual for a Saint Lucia single pot still rum, coupled with rich touches of honey. Its 22-year aging process lends depth to its profile, though some may find it on the subdued side. A sip of it reveals a tang of lychee and a dash of salted licorice. This rum, rounded off at an ABV of just under 50%, reveals a pleasant, if unexpected amalgamation of tastes.

“Very inviting nose, smells like an old rum. But falls off quite a bit on the palate as a limp, woody distillate. I'm not at all familiar with the extremely expressive John Dore and I don't particularly like it. A below-average representative from Saint Lucia.”

“#4126 Despite the ABV being below 50 it still has a nice warm and spicy touch to it. Lightly fruity with some nice roasted wood as well as a light smoky note. There is a nice natural sweetness to it. Draws nice fast moving curtains in the glass. The empty glass has some chocolate and spices.”

“Cross-tasting with seven bottlings from Royal Cane. Promising nose, somewhat one-dimensional on the palate, slightly too woody on the finish. Overall, none of the bottlings convinced me.”
