Zacapa Reserva Limitada 2014

…Limited Edition Herb-Infused Blend  

We just heard that Zacapa will be releasing Reserva Limitada 2014, into the UK market this month. The second in what they envisage will be an annual series of limited editions. The 2013 blend was a blend of casks that was then given a year’s further ageing which we thought was pretty good. This year’s release promises something else entirely.

Berry Bros and Rudd Exceptional Cask 1977 Jamaican Overproof Rum

Exceptional Spirits...  

A few months, seemingly out of the blue a tot of rum turned up at my door marked Jamaica 1977 with a note enquiring my thoughts about it. I won’t lie – my main reaction was “I wish there was more of it”, but the sip revealed a bold, punchy Jamaican rum that demanded attention and hung around a fair bit after the sip had long since left my mouth… Turns out it was a small measure of the recently released Exceptional Cask series of which I’ve more information to share with you all.
