Bristol Spirits Ltd import premium Caribbean rum into the UK and carefully cellar them to maturity in the country. They seek out small quantities, sometimes only single barrels from a single distillery, or a single estate or even a single still to show rum in its true unblended form. There are now around 12 rums in the Bristol Classics portfolio, most of which have been aged in casks in English warehouses for between 10 and 25 years. Each is from a single still, or a single estate. Interestingly the rums exhibit a range of styles easily equal to that perceived in fine Cognacs or single malt whiskies.
Bristol Classic Rockley Still 1986 Rum1980-1989, Anniversary / Birth Year, Pure Single Rum, Rum
Bristol Classic Rockley Still 1986 Rum is a very rare rum is from the last production year of the Rockley still in Barbados. It has been bottled at different ages, aged in selected casks previously used to mature Malmsey Madeira and finished in Fino sherry casks. A salty brine like flavour and long deep taste combine to show a totally very special rum of the highest quality. The power of this rum is tamed slightly by the hint of sweetness on the nose; the colour has been darkened by the sweet wine soaked wood.
