Have you ever sliced and diced sweet pineapples on the forecourt of a petrol station and listened to Harry Belafonte song ‘Island in the sun’? If not give this one a try and you will meet a crazy intensity of sweetness and, possibly, overripe fruits, while in the finish a burnt sticky toffee pudding. With water we sat in a rum shack on the beach watching an old fishing boat getting a gloss of paint while eating rice and peas – long grain white rice, dried kidney beans, coconut milk and plenty of whole, uncut and unbruised Scotch bonnet peppers. After eight years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this rum into a shaved-toasted-re-charred second fill barrique.
