Rum masters Doug McIvor and Jean Francois Koenig hand select casks of perfectly mature rum and blend them together to create Penny Blue XO. Penny Blue XO is released in small batches, with variations on the proportions of different casks. Each batch in the series retains a level of continuity, yet is distinct in character; high levels of complexity becoming the hallmark of XO. Penny Blue XO is non chillfiltered and natural in colour.
Full amber gold in colour, the nose is fresh and well balanced with a subtle smoky wood spice and a touch of tobacco. The palae is mouth filling and generous, dominated by sweet fruits, wood spice and cooking spices. A very long finish reminiscent of prunes macerated in well aged rum.
