Signature Blend #2 Golden Blended Rum
This is the first expression in That Boutique-y Rum Company’s Signature Blend range. Most of the rums from this independent bottler are one-offs, never to be repeated. But the Signature Blend range has been designed to be continuously available. So, this is them offering something a little more appropriate for mixing into cocktails. And as an added bonus, it comes in a full-sized bottle rather than the usual 500ml ones, which means more for mixing!
Signature Blend #2 is chunky with lots of dried fruit flavours. It was developed in collaboration with Peter Holland, a legend in the rum industry. While working as a mechanical engineer, he set up the website TheFloatingRumShack.com in 2009 as a hobby, and he has rapidly become one of the rum world’s leading experts and commentators. Between hosting rum festivals, consulting, judging for the IWSC, being a thoroughly nice bloke and drinking lots of rum, he is also an ambassador for Foursquare Distillery, ATOM Brands and That Boutique-y Rum Company.
For this blend, Pete used a really punchy brew from Guyana, plus some super-funky rums from Jamaica. The result is a robust rum full of Christmas cake fruit, Medjool dates, dried apricots, pineapple and banana bread, but with a rich seam of dark chocolate, coffee, Assam tea, Tunnock’s Caramel and cigar notes, not to mention something reminiscent of a mechanic’s garage. This is fast becoming our go-to for a Mai Tai, but we also really enjoy it in a Treacle or a Rum Sour because the depth of flavour elevates these relatively simple cocktails to a gourmet level.
Scotch fans will already be well aware of That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s work. The rum spin-off, That Boutique-y Rum Company, is an independent bottler who source the finest rums from the greatest distilleries and add their own unique twist to them, along with distinctive comic book style labels.
