Now recognised as perhaps the smoothest spiced rum on the market today, Wensleydale Spiced Rum from the Wensleydale Spirit Company sets the bar when it comes to full strength, premium, double distilled, dark rum. Wensleydale Spiced Rum can be used as a great base for cocktails or mixers, but uniquely it was created to be drunk neat or on the rocks. Most people use mixers in rum to mask the harsh taste that is associated with non-premium rums, This harshness is a product of cheap alcohol bases and poor spicing. Wensleydale Spiced Rum uses a luxurious and expensive fermented molasses-based alcohol which is rich and smooth, and within which cocoa, vanilla, and tangerine zest are layered above spices including ginger, black pepper and cardamom. The spices are distilled to hot the palette in waves, giving warmth without being overwhelming and taking away from the rick indulgent flavours.
