Rum of the Week – Old Monk

posted in: News, Rum of the week | 0

Old Monk XXX Supreme

With a name like that it’s hard to not get excited over hearing it, especially in a wrestling commentators voice. Not only that but the bottle is pretty enticing too, so you’re pouring Old Monk Rum from a monk shaped bottle. The rum itself is an Indian rum from the Mohan Meakin distillery who never advertise their spirit, their reputation comes from word of mouth (which is why we got it in!). It is an older expression than their standard and even their 7 year old expression and is dark, sweet with caramel, sweet spice and butterscotch with a lovely silky feel.

Cocktail Suggestion

In Between The Sheets

This includes, lemon juice, Old Monk XXX Supreme, Cointreau and a sugar rim. These all work to balance and bring out the spicy caramel notes without overpowering them either.
