My ancestors made their living from the sea – so a bottle of rum displaying a fishing vessel automatically connects with me.
Readily available in Scotland, Watson’s Trawler Rum follows a long tradition of dark rums & hails from independent bottlers Ian MacLeod Distillers.
It’s a no nonesense affordable rum presented in a screw cap bottle displaying an old fashioned aura – which immediately caught my eye.
Sweet & rubbery nose – inkeeping with the origin countries signature flavours.
Dark molasses, treacle cake like with a touch of oaky spice on top.
More treacly spice on the finish which gently fades away.
A very easy & approachable rum pleasing to my palate, my purse & providing a characterful flair to boot.
A suitable offering to toast all the seafarers of the past & present who put their life’s at peril to provide food for our plates & transport the goods we desire
