Sample Eleven Blended Rum

Created by Jürgen Vromans (The Whisky/Rum Mercenary) & Erik Molenaar (Kintra Spirits)

Here it is! Our own blended rum creation. What started as a wild idea developed into a project that almost took a whole year. With our experience in selection of single cask rums we bravely started this project to create our own rum filled with character. Great to drink neat or to use in a mix.

But blending proved to be a real challenge. Combinations that we knew would work on paper did not always work in real life. More than 20 experiments later we decided that we loved blend number 11. A blend with a combination of just the right amount of fruitiness, impressive flavours and a long finish. This was the one.

As you are used from us we are quite open about everything that we do, so here are the building blocks that we have used for our creation. Our basis was formed with rums from Panama, Guyana, Barbados and the Dominican Republic, all aged between 2 and 5 years. Then we added some unaged Jamaican pure pot still rum. Funky!

But we were not there yet. A small quantity of older rum can work miracles and add depth and complexity to the mix. So we added some Caroni 19 years old and Enmore 27 years old. If you have been following our single cask expressions, these likely will sound familiar to you.

The name of this expression simply refers to batch 11, the one selected from all the experiments. Nothing more, nothing less. Enjoy Sample Eleven Blended Rum! – Gentle but Bold

Pierre Lecat Cognac

This small family owned Vineyard in Saint Fraigne has originally been supplying the larger cognac producers in the region with high quality wines since the mid 1970’s. The farm grows some 20 hectares of Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Folle Blanche grapes for their Eau de Vie. Today the largest part of their production is used for their own brand of Cognac…Pierre Lecat, named after the local watchmaker that lived in the village in the past. The wines are distilled on site in their own 40 year old Charentais Alambic and the distillate is than filled into french oak casks for up to 20 years and more. The Lecat Cognacs are bottled from 3 years up to 23 years as VS Instinct, VSOP experience and XO memoire after the various casks are blended to create the distinct character.

Domaine UBY Armagnac

Domaine UBY is situated in the Gascogne area of France. It is a family owned vineyard that produces Wines and Armagnac. The range of UBY Armagnac is created from both the Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grapes and distilled at the vineyard itself.

They age in French Oak barrels to develop the “eau de vie” into the noble amber-coloured liquid. The traditional range consists of 5 different age expressions. 3 to 20 years old.Armagnac “UBY OAK” was added to the portfolio. It has matured in 3 different types of cask and is created from 50% Baco and 50% Ugni Blanc grapes. The UBY OAK is 100% organic and can be described as “a new generation of Armagnac”. Recent addition to the UBY OAK range is the No. 12. Bottled after 12 years maturation in new French oak casks. A very luxurious well balanced drink.

Golden Cask

The Golden Cask series is the label for the independent Single Malt Whisky releases from The House of Macduff. For each expression Jane Macduf, here son Iain and advisor John McDougall select a single cask whisky and bottle it at cask-strength, non chill filtered while not adding any colouring. Kintra Spirits is the exclusive importer for Golden Cask in the Netherlands.

They have presented some true gems in the last years. Macduff 33 and 35 years old, Bunnahabhain 28y, Benrinnes 21y…. but also younger whiskies that are absolutely stunning: Miltonduff 8y, Craighellachie 10y, Longmorn 9y etc etc.

The House of Macduff also releases the Selkie Blended Malt and The Burns Nectar Single Malt. The Selkie is an exquisite blend of 5 Single Malts. Batch 1 has sold out, batch 2 is now available. The Burns Nectar is a 5y old Highland Single Malt aged on former Olorosso sherry casks. Very mature for its age.
