Butterscotch is one of those flavours that you find all over the shop in terms of aged spirits, but it's not very often that you see a spirit that really leans into it. This expression from the Project #173 Rum range really puts its full weight behind that butterscotch brilliance. Not to say that this neglects to make itself known as a rum - there are all sorts of tasty clues towards that fact - but it really does go all-in on the rich, creamy, sweet butterscotch notes. Fab sipped neat, and we reckon this would make for some great cocktails too, or poured into hot chocolate on a chilly winter evening. As ever, the Project #173 bottle looks wonderfully snazzy, with a 23 karat gold leaf flake and all.
Nose: Banana fritters, Fruit Salad sweeties, honey, brown sugar caramelising in a pan, a hint of orange blossom.
Palate: Nectarine, satsuma, Werther's Original, sticky toffee pudding, cocoa, soft peppery spice sneaking in later on.
Finish: Vanilla tablet and milky coffee, though still quite fruity all the way through the finish.
Overall: Lip-smacking stuff, with big ol' bundles of butterscotch to enjoy.
