AB Gold Heritage Golden Jamaican/Yorkshire Rum 40% 70cl
I came across AB Gold at a food festival just outside Malton, on the way to taking the kids to Scarborough. There were people holding bottles asking everyone if they wanted to try a 'Yorkshire rum', so naturally I was intrigued.
OK, so this isn't ACTUALLY rum from Yorkshire. It's a blend of Jamaican rums from 3 secret distilleries - my gut instincts are Monymusk, Worthy Park and maybe Mount Gay (less confident on that last one) - that have been diluted with 'soft' Yorkshire spring water.
Jamaican rum is best known for a full-on 'funk', the result of lengthy fermentation in tanks with the lids left off so the elements can attack it. While the tanks look distinctly off-putting, the end result is an intense explosion of ester-y notes such as overripe banana peels. It's a bit of a Marmite profile however, as some can find it overpowering, particularly on the nose.
However, AB Gold dials down the 'funkiness', offering some of that ester note but tempered somewhat. It's a great introduction to the Jamaican style without being in your face, and as such is also a great base for rum cocktails that need some extra zing.
