Apologies on the lengthy look forward to this evaluation of Grander’s newest Trophy Release, which started in 2020 and has been supposed as a twice-yearly version. Launch 20B08 — they’re now indicated with launch data on the entrance label — hit in early 2022, and it’s a batch of 6 barrels from Panama — three 8 12 months outdated and one 15 12 months outdated (each ex-bourbon barrel) rums plus two 13 12 months outdated rums. A kind of is a barrel of 12 12 months outdated rum completed 15 months in toasted oak, the opposite is a 12 12 months outdated completed in ex-Speyside Scotch casks. Complicated? Sure. However who’s counting? Right here’s the upshot.

No complaints right here. This can be a candy, maple-forward rum that’s simple with notes of molasses, dates, and Vietnamese espresso, a spritz of orange oil and a few charcoal dusting the nostril. The palate sees touches of bready whiskey licking across the edges, although a stronger date/fig character at all times emerges to beat again the facility of malt. The end is one thing of a examine in contrasts, with a slight hogo-adjacent earthiness coming taking the sting off a typically fruit-forward bottling. By no means tropical, this can be a extra smoldering expertise that tends to evoke dried fruits and raisins and leaves you to ponder them.

105.2 proof. Reviewed: Batch #20A02.
