Innis & Gunn Rum Aged

A few or so reviews ago I put up a review of an Innis & Gunn Beer from Edinburgh Scotland, Original Oak Aged. Well I also have here Innis & Gunn Rum Aged, 6.8% ABV. This Innis & Gunn is aged with rum oak chips for fifty-seven days prior to bottling. Back in 2012 this beer won Grande Gold at Monde Selection. Well let’s see if that is still the case. This Innis & Gunn pours a ruby red color with a thick but tight creamy off white head three finger that looks like whipped ice cream and stick around. The aroma is sweet scented with hints of toffee a bit of sweeter fruits and touches of some malt. Innis & Gunn Rum Aged has a sweet taste of some slight fruit and nice soft toffee-malt with tiny hints of vanilla. The finish is nice and smooth with malted toffee and that is where the after taste comes in with a nice sweet creaminess. The mouth feel is medium on this Innis & Gunn. I think that this beer lives up to it 2012 Grande Gold medal. It’s an A+ for sure, and I think it’s better than the Innis & Gunn Original Oak Aged Beer. The rum aging really brings out the sweet flavors in this beer and also added some great flavors. I recommend that you try Innis & Gunn Rum Aged Beer. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
