Entering uncharted waters, JPJ has finished its signature seaweed-infused base spirit using a cask previously engaged by a world famous Islay whisky distiller. A single quarter-cask was laid down in Scotland for 18 months, so only 156 70cl bottles will be released – each one numbered and presented in its own display box.  

 Critical Review - Jonathan Ray - Spirits Editor 

"By ageing first-rate, seaweed-infused Caribbean white rum in a former Laphroaig whisky cask, they’ve come up with a punchy, deeply moreish spirit, the like of which I’ve not tasted before. 

A feisty 47.5%vol, it’s hardly shy and retiring, but it’s not the alcohol that hits you – it’s too well integrated – no, it’s a hearty blast of iodine-y, smokey, Islay single malt. I was momentarily wrong-footed: was it a rum or a whisky? 

But hang on, a second sip and warm, sweet, spicy, toffee rum notes flooded through in perfect balance with the salty, peaty whisky. A third sip and I was happy as a lark, loving the complex, intriguing Scots-Caribbean marriage and begging for more. "

Tasting Notes

by Milroys of Soho

  • Nose
  • Palate
  • Finish
A sharp hit of sweet spice, seaweed salinity, and a whisper of smoke.
Rich Caribbean Rum texture coats the mouth with hits of vanilla, green grass, and ripe fruit. The vegetal nature of Laphroaig comes through in the mid-palate where the smoke swirls all the flavours around.
A soft finish with sweet, fruity notes carrying through with lots of smoke bursting through. A spice kicks up at the very end, leaving a lasting impression.

If you like a smokey whisky or mezcal, but not the harshness of the spirit, this is for you.

Sad only 150-odd being made, I could drink it forever!
