A Pair of Liverpool’s, 12 Year Old, Single Malt Whisky, 46%, 16 Year Old, Single Cask Rum, 43%

There is a Gin Distillery in Liverpool – but as far as I know no whisky or rum is made there.

This pair of plainly – yet strikingly bold – labelled bottles would therefore be sourced spirits for the Liverpool brand who are in turn part of Halewood International.

The simple design appealed to me – along with the high age statements – so a couple of miniatures were ordered – via Just Miniatures.

Liverpool Whisky, 12 Year Old, Small Batch, Single Malt, 46%

The whisky is light brown in colour with viscous legs.

A honeyed nose redolent of sweet summer fruits greeted me.

Soft, easy & inviting.

Back label c/othewhiskeynut

Quite a spirity little number – but possessing a decent depth of flavour & a lovely prickly spice on the finish.

A very nice single malt indeed.

16yo rum c/othewhiskeynut

Liverpool Rum, 16 Year Old, Small Batch, Single Cask, 43%

A deep golden brown – also with viscous legs.

Sweet caramelly nose with a hint of funk peeking through.

The palate was gentle & smooth. Layers of dark demerara coated the mouth before a growing oaky woodiness added drying tannic spice on the finish.

Back rum c/othewhiskeynut

These are both fine spirits.

You may not know who or where they were distilled – but they are certainly enjoyable to encounter!
