Killowen dark rum, black walnut & spiced lapsang
A born and bred Irish Rum. Fermented onsite at Killowen from 50% blackstrap molasses and 50% Sugar only. The wash is distilled by Killowen's flame-fed copper pot stills and worm-tubs, the first still uses a copper thumper keg which acts as another half distillation, hence the bottle stating, 2.5 times distilled.
Solera method cask ageing was chosen for this dark rum using a range of casks. The distillate was first laid down in a series of 6 ex-bourbon 50-liter firkins, then a PX Sherry Cask, and finally in heavily charred Cabernet Sauvignon casks.
Like all Killowen spirits, this distillate is a cut above all other quality rums. The focus on pot still distillation and cask ageing is evident in a viscous, well-balanced, spicy, heavy, and molasses-led flavor that acknowledges its raw ingredients and cask ageing method.
We then take this exceptional rum and blend it with some rich black walnut bitters and and our small batch spiced lapsang syrup bringing notes of cinnamon, pimento & clove to the fore. Originally on the menu at Library St Dublin, this cocktail is available for a limited run only.
Available in 200ml - ABV 20%
