Dr Bird Haiku review

Doctor Funkenstein.
Pungent; Tequila and Scotch
Appleton seems tame.

Wow. This one... what can I say?
I like the bottle. It looks like patent medicine.
It's overwhelming in aroma and flavor.


i'm trying to think what it compares to or how to mix it. I just put a squeeze of lime in. I tried it with ginger beer, but it didn't seem right. It wasn't bad though.

I would buy this one again for sure, because it's so interesting.

I tried it head-to-head against Appleton V/X, and the Appleton seemed very mellow in comparison. Not a bad thing, just different.

It might be more appropriate to compare to Smith and Cross.

Kudo's to t8ke at Reddit:





Quote:
The Schtick: This is a traditional pot still rum that is distilled at Worthy Park in Jamaica and then imported to the states and partially aged in Moscatel barrels. It is aged for 6 years in Jamaica before spending some unreleased quantity of time aging in Moscatel casks, first fill, in the States.

Distiller: Worthy Park

Bottler: Dr. Bird

ABV: 50% ABV

Age: 6 years (Aged in Jamaica, Finishing Time Uncertain)

Source: Sample

Nose: Sweet banana, caramel, butterscotch, funky but not meaty.

Taste: Thick, rich. Sweet sugar, ripe banana and guava, rich funkiness, maple. The moscatel is doing super interesting things here.

Finish: Long, sweet and rich. Nice and funky without being overbearing.

Overall: This is really good, definitely unique. I really enjoyed it, and I plan to pick up a bottle soon.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7


Long time posters here would probably not hesitate a microsecond to pick this one up for just $25...
