Sikkim Black Cat Rum

by Oliver Klimek on June 1, 2010

Indian rum from the Himalayas – 40%

My Tasting Notes:

Color: Very dark amber
Nose: Very intense, raisins, cocoa and a hint of lovage.
Palate: Raisins, caramel, vanilla, minimally bitter.
Finish: Long and dry.
Overall: This rum was aged in the subtropic climate of Rangpo in Sikkim close to the cold and high Himalayan mountains. It has a nose to die for, but it is a bit weaker on the palate. Exotic provenance but a quite decent (and very inexpensive) rum.

Rating: 80/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Another fine malt from this often overlooked distillery. It is both gentle and complex at the same time. A great aperitive whisky to open up your senses. Rating: 84/100
