Depth Charge Spiced Rum packs a big, powerful flavour profile, having been made with a fantastic base of Caribbean rum, a selection of tasty spices and generous helpings of lime and mandarin at its core. The name comes from an ancient seafaring tale, where there was once a formidable sailor who encountered a fierce mythological sea monster, which defeated it comprehensively. But then, something appeared to challenge the sea monster - it was Depth Charge! Or at least, some version of that story. You can see what they did there. Anyway, expect this expression to be great served simply over ice with a good wedge of lime, and it should pair brilliantly with all those classic rum mixers we know and love.
Nose: Brown sugar, rich honey, old fashioned cola and a big burst of fresh citrus brightness, underpinned by baking spice warmth.
Palate: Cinnamon and vibrant lime sit up front, bolstered by further flashes of orange, peppercorn, cola cubes and allspice. Runny caramel and just a touch of apple sit in the background.
Finish: Sweet vanilla and a final citrusy splash.
Overall: A particularly booming spiced rum, this.
