COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited bottling of Innis & Gunn has been finished over oak infused with Caribbean Spiced Rum. The result is absolutely delicious, bursting with the flavours of Caribbean spices along with our signature notes of vanilla, toffee and oak.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl, 2012 edition) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Mildly malty aroma with notes of coconut, anise, vanilla and toffee, accompanied by a delicately fruity touch of ripe pineapples. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Slightly buttery malty base with oaky accents with hints of vanilla and toffee; moderately sweet malty finish, not as sticky as expected with a whiff of alcohol. Not bad, quite rounded. 13.IV.13

HoppyBudgie (640) - SOLA, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from kvadrat. Golden color with off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel aroma with hints of vanilla. Fruity, malty, spicey and some lactose caramel in there but not so mutch as the plain Innis and gun has. Fruity finish

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear deep amber body with a thick, creamy off-white head, looking very nice indeed. Nose is strong vanilla and oak tones with caramel malts and caramel pudding (loads of it here), booze, rum and hints of pepper, butterscotch and sugar. Sweet as hell, but still kind of tantalizing. Taste is sweet vanilla and butterscotch, with caramel pudding, rum and sugary grains in the back. Hints of booze and wood in the finish. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. A bit of a vanilla-and-rum overdose, but since I do have a sweet tooth Im willing to let some of the madness slide. Nevertheless, its a bit too much in the end but definitely a taste-packing brew.

mile (2853) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light dark fruitiness - vinous notes, light spiciness - rum, light vanilla/oak, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish, some caramel, some dark fruitiness, light vanilla, some alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, faint caramel, and faint fruitiness and light vanilla, alcohol. OK aroma, but finish almost totally lacks fruitiness - too much alcohol in the finish. Aroma/flavor not in balance.

Bottle. Why describe it-- you can see for yourself through the clear bottle. Sigh. Okay, Im not going to gie this much of my time. It iss overly sweet and rummy, and just not my thing. The rum casks are my least favourite from a brewerry that has only a few decent outputs for me. I suppose it will find its fans, but Im not counted among them. Just too sweet and rummy.

Very clear rum flavor mixed with vanilla and butterscotch and a lot of sweetness from the malt.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2013
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows lots of toffee and butterscotch along with vanilla and soft spiced apple. Very sweet-smelling. Equally sweet flavours. Maybe too sweet. More butter, butterscotch and toffee. Incredibly sweet. Could use a lot more carbonation.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at CGarvie Tasting. It pours clear amber with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is toffee,spice, honey, earth and candy floss. The taste is earth, honey, icing sugar, rum, faint vanilla, brown bread and alcohol. Light-medium body and low carbonation. No real depth of flavour. Forgettable.
