About this Little Brown Dog release
A little gift to you, from the wonderful folk at Little Brown Dog. And, something incredibly fun and interesting, at that.
Taking their popular and highly regarded Wee Mongrel blended rum, they filled two maple syrup casks at the beginning of the year. After 8 months in these rich and incredibly fun casks, the rum had transformed into an absolute maple delight.
Little Brown Dog have previous form with maple syrup casks. Two years ago they won best cask aged gin for #projectQUERCUSACER, their gin matured in maple syrup casks. Being unable to use this specific cask type for Scotch whisky, they thought the rum would be an excellent pairing and, having seen people’s faces light up when they try this, they were right!
Start with good rum, aged 8 to 15 years in refill bourbon barrels, from Panama, Venezuela and the Dominican republic. Then a further 8 months in the maple syrup casks.
The fresh wood gives an intoxicating aroma of maple syrup and almost a slight smokiness. It’s like drinking dessert, and they didn’t have to add artificial flavourings, sugar or colour to do this. Just let the maturation do its job.
