Australian Rum 2012 Tasting Notes

Picture this: Head to the gym and jump over the varnished oak vault to land on the floor mats, a leather-covered table next to it with boxing gloves and linseed oil to soothe sore muscles.

Nose: It 's the smell of the gym with floor mats, trainers, leather hand guards and a bowl of chalk dust to protect hands from ropes dangling from metal hooks in the ceiling . There is a medicine cabinet with linseed oil, antiseptic creams and bandages for cuts.

Mouth: It's the boxing ring with ropes, boxing gloves and satin robes, rubber mouth guard with antiseptic rinse, ripe bananas and orange slices, polished silver trophies, plus avocado and chilli on sourdough, rice pudding with mango and cinnamon.

Finish: Chai tea and polished silver.

How much is shipping?

Shipping charges are calculated during checkout, depending on where you live and how many bottles you’re buying. Shipping within the UK is free on orders over £100.

What about taxes?

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs. 

Which couriers do you use?

In the UK we use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and APC. US orders are sent via UPS. International orders use FedEx and DHL.
