HSE Whisky Kilchoman Cask Finish 2013
ABV (PROOF): 44% (88)
PRICE: $ 79 | € 68
For more than a century, Rhum HSE has been one of the main producers of rhum agricole in Martinique. This exclusive collaboration with Kilchoman showcases a six-year old liquor with a four-month finish in Islay peated single malt casks. The result is surprising: the rustic flavor of agricultural rum melts with the potency of peat in a bold product.
In the glass, sweet peaty scents and mineral notes, together with vegetal and smoky aromas. On the palate it is peaty and herbal, enriched by an explosion of spices. In the finish, cedar zest, wood and ash.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the rums tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those who scored the best were selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The only indication on the sample concerns the ABV content: a red mark states that the product has an ABV higher than 50% (100° proof). The test results are then compared, and the TOP 10 is made. This list will be published in detail in the Winter 2020 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
