Vintage Jamaican Rum

In and amongst the celebrations, and in the presence of Martin and Jeff, Tony unearthed (almost literally!) a bottle of old Jamaica Rum, and with a careful extraction of the deteriorated cork, decanted a sample that had not seen fresh air for over 60 years. Incredible on the nose, it had the unmistakable aroma of Jamaican rum- pot still heavy, rich and pungent- but failed to deliver on the palate. Although interesting and spicy, it had a thin finish and lacked the body the nose suggested. Still, another chapter in the bar with no name's historic tastings
