Dr. Bird Jamaican Rum Keg N Bottle + The Grass Skirt Selection

The Schtick: This rare release is a cask strength version of the already popular Dr. Bird rum. Finished in Vermouth barrels and bottled at cask strength, this is sure to be a treat, as I was a fan of the OG Bird. Let’s give it a go.

Review #1536 | Rum Review #97

Distiller: Worthy Park

Bottler: Two James Spirits

Brand: Two James Spirits

Selection: Keg N Bottle

ABV: 59.2% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Rich and acidic – loaded with vinegar, fruity and musty bouquet. Rich honey, wine, some sour fruit and a ton of caramel.

Taste: Medium on the palate with loads of caramel, papaya, honey and nutty sweetness. Some wine weirdness here, as well as burning rubber. Heat is very much in check.

Finish: Long, rich and pungent. Ashy, burning rubber, tons of toffee and funk. Rich and powerful.

Overall: Just like the one I tried blind earlier, this is really really enjoyable. Love this profile and the availability of CS bird now via these picks.

Thanks for reading!
