    Inspired by and named after an 18th Century wine and spirits merchants operating in the very same building as their offices, J.G. Thomson is a new brand from The Artisanal Spirits Company, who also own the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Launched in November 2021, the range initially features a selection of Blended Malt whiskies based on seperate flavour profiles, an aged Blended Malt, a vintage Blended Grain, a Jamaican rum and a gin.

    What I'm looking for in a Jamaican rum is that classic 'funk' - that almost indescribable foisty nose and flavour created by leaving fermentation tanks open to allow all sorts of things to sit on top of the liquid and fester. It's an absolute Marmite profile, but something that if you love it, you LOVE it.

    And fortunately this has the funk in spades. The rum is 100% pot-distilled with maturation fully in ex-Bourbon casks - for at least 3 years in Jamaica with some further time spent in barrel in Scotland. The nose is full of overripe banana skins and paint fumes, which in the palate turn almost vegetal, yet at the same time woody, chocolatey, sweet and sour. It's bonkers and I am so pleased the producers absolutely went full on rather than hold back for a half-assed version..
