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.

Scopey (7396) - 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.

Bouteille 330 ml. 7.4%. Couleur ambrée claire, mousse blanche-beige pâle. Arôme de sucre d’orge, bois et malt. En bouche, un peu de bois, de cassonnade et de.....rhum ! Se boit bien, un peu aqueuse mais bonne. Finale en vanille, alcool et bois.

Ontbeertaster (2340) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle, pour is a clear amber, the flavour is very strong in terms of woodiness, it doesnt have much in the way of a rum flavour. But it is nice and enjoyable.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2013
Pours amber with light coloured thin dissipating head. Aroma is a bit of spice, oak. Flavour is caramel, spice, and vanilla, interesting to try but the actual beer is kind of bland.

sulawang (641) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
pours medium brown-amber with a nice size creamy heady, thin retention, some active streams. Vanilla & toffee malts on the nose. Attack: gentle 7/10-mellow sweetness mixed with caramel malts Mid-palate: more malts, minor alcohol detection/rum, trace amounts of cinnamon/nutmeg, mild pepperiness Finish: soft crisp caramel light bitter malts, clean finish. Very smooth and drinkable. I like it more than their original.
