A buddy recently bought a single barrel of the recent Dr. Bird rums but wasn't sure if there was a finish on it, or not. He asked me to try some and help verify, since the state of Oregon doesn't list much info on these. I was happy to lend my tasting and give his bottle a go. Let's see how it shook out.
Sweet honey, rotting banana, caramel and floral sweetness. Rich and powerful, decadent and inviting. Savory
Thick on the palate, with lots of banana, plum, faint oak, sweet toffee and caramel. Really sweet, but pairs well with that banana WP funk.
Long finish, with a bit of heat. Sweet, fruity, funky. A hint of pepper and vinegar here, which fades nicely with the sweet dessert notes.
Another winner from the Doctor here. This is definitely the same as the previous Dr. Bird Cask Strength I did as a selection, it is clear this isn't finished in a secondary cask of some kind, which means this is raw unfiltered cask strength Dr. Bird which I am so here for. Love these.
