Description
 
The Penny Blue Stamp, printed in Mauritius in 1847, immediately became a collectors’ item because of its inscription. From the thousand stamps printed at the time, only twelve are believed to be in existence today. The Penny Blue is considered to be the rarest stamp in the world. This single estate, limited edition rum is named after this stamp. Doug McIvor from Berry Bros. & Rudd and Medine’s Master Distiller, Jean Francois Koenig, have selected 14 individual casks at the very peak of their maturity. Some of these barrels are American oak whisky casks and others are French oak Cognac casks. All bottles are individually numbered and from the first batch only 2500 bottles were allocated for the entire USA.

This is a mature spirit with layers to spare - the nose abounds with tropical fruits, orange blossom, rich espresso coffee, salted ham with cloves and honey glaze. The palate is beautifully balanced, smooth and complex with soft citrus, tropical fruits and nutty aromas with delicate wood tannins. The Penny Blue strikes an intriguing balance between the sweet and savory, settling into an intriguing complexity.
