Starting as a limited edition rum, the Bundaberg small batch saw such success that it was decided it would become a permanent line in the Bundaberg range. The small batch is a blend of Bundaberg rums, from some of the youngest to some of the oldest, and is then matured in brandy barrels. Note: This is not available in the US.

Tasting Notes

"Sweet cane and spice are the first noticeable flavors, followed closely by roasted woody tones, rising through with tart rind. Vanilla makes an obligatory appearance, seemingly distant and wishing it were elsewhere. Easy oils makes for a somewhat plain rum. Harsh acetone hits the palate with the wood souring, wicked minerals dropping the ball on what was an alright show. The vanilla recalls its job and hastens in to sooth and calm the now burnt and shaken taste buds. The finish is tart and filled with sour wood, acetone streaking through with a medium length. "
