ST. NICHOLAS ABBEY 5 YEARS OLD
Built in 1658, St. Nicholas Abbey is an imposing Jacobean plantation house located in the unspoilt district of St. Peter. During its 350 year history, St. Nicholas Abbey’s primary source of income was sugar, finally closing its doors on sugar syrup production in 1947. In 2006 the fortunes of St. Nicholas Abbey turned around when it was purchased and since restored, by the Warren family. A steam press, syrup evaporator and still are now operational and once again, producing fine rum at St. Nicholas Abbey. St Nicholas Abbey now produce rum exclusively sold from syrup extracted from hand-cut cane from the surrounding fields. They currently produce a white rum and a 5 yearold golden rum. With very limited availability the rum is bottled by hand into decanters which are then engraved with a number and dated. This artisanal rum is truly reflective of St. Nicholas Abbey’s provenance, heritage and authenticity. Other rums produced by St. Nicholas Abbey are White, a 12, 15 and 18 year old selected by Larry Warren from the cellars of R L Seale.
A sweet nose reminiscent of fudge, chocolate and cinnamon with a hint of tobacco.
Incredibly smooth with notes of dried fruit, oranges and sweet spice. The finish is silky smooth and very long.
