The finish is reasonably long. What starts out as a duel between the sweetness of the port and the influence of the oak finished up as a waltz, or maybe a tango!

This is a rum for grown-ups. The sickly sweetness so common in commercial rums is missing, so too the presence of added spices. It is smart, graceful and sophisticated.
The history of the SS FERRET
It's been brought to our attention in a review by 'The Lone Caner' that we had not told the story of this fine rum's namesake, the SS FERRET.
Built of iron in 1871 in Glasgow, this 170.9’ long, 450 ton steam ship was owned by the Highland Railway Co when in 1880 the ship was stolen as part of a conspiracy in which it disappeared from its home in Scotland and mysteriously reappeared several months later in Australia under the new name of “India”.
