We prepared a Jamaican rum punch; pineapple, orange, plenty of lime juice, grenadine syrup and, of course, rum - funky navy strength high ester rum. Wait for the taste neat, a blasting beast of spice and fermented fruits – think Hampden (not Park and football but Estate and rum!). Diluted we made a ‘Papa Doble Daiquiri’, named after Ernest Hemingway’s favourite cocktail, use half the sugar content (if indeed any) and double the booze! Takes water very well as on the palate we still had plenty of spice, but now balanced with some oak sweetness and a spoonful of Maraschino liqueur. After 11 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a second fill heavy charred hogshead.
