Killik Tasting notes

Killik Gold

42%ABV – $79

KILLIK Gold is aged in Chardonnay barrels for 12 months.

Tasting Notes: The high ester nature results in a super funky Jamaican style distillate loaded with sweet red fruit characters, cherry, strawberry lollies & bubblegum.

What is Hogo or High Ester? Originally a Jamaican style, hogo is an easily identifiable flavour which is the result of wild fermentation. It is commonly characterised by its potent, funky nose and taste. It can be very difficult to define and can vary wildly. In the case of KILLIK, it is often very fruity with strong hints of tropical fruit, over-ripe bananas, strawberry and a distinct milkiness. 

How to Serve: KILLIK Gold is delicious by itself but also, this style is perfect for creating an authentic Mai Tai, try it out yourself!

Mai Tai: 30ml KILLIK Gold, 45ml fresh lime juice, 15ml cointreau, 15ml simple syrup and 7.5ml orgeat

Killik Double Barrel

44%ABV – $88

What is Double Barrel? Aged for 12 months in two separate casks, Bourbon and Muscat, and blended at bottling time, this is our easiest going rum.

Tasting Notes: Half of this rum is aged in Rutherglen Muscat barrels and lends a soft round quality to the blend, contributing loads of dark dried fruit to the nose and pallet. The other half comes from a bourbon barrel and reintroduces structure and dry spice into the blend.

How to serve: KILLIK Double barrel is a perfect sipping rum, or try in a Hot Buttered Rum!

Killik Spiced Batch B

40%ABV – $59

Killik Spiced White Batch B is one of our unique spiced white rums. It is golden in colour due to maceration after vapour extraction, but is an unaged white rum.

This batch focuses on various teas resulting in a floral rum with distinct woody undertones and layers of dried fruit. The botanicals include Rooibos, Sencha, Jasmine and peppermint.

This can be used where you may use aged rums or any cocktail that want warmer softer  characteristics than batch A.

Killik Spiced Batch C

40%ABV – $59

Killik Spiced White Batch C is a special spiced white. Produced with our high ester white spirit and fermented on pineapple bark.

It is then macerated on pineapple bark and passed through a gin basket containing limes and mandarin.

All of this makes for a really fruit driven mixer that exhibits fantastical notes of peach tea, citrus and pineapple.

Killik Spiced Batch D

40%ABV – $69

What is Batch D? Killik Spiced Gold Batch D is a very unique blend of rich chai tea spices selected from multiple barrels.

Tasting Notes: This blend contains some high ester spirit and some more mellow spirit for the perfect balance. Has distinct aromas of classic creamy chai tea spices, cardamon, cinnamon & nutmeg.

Interesting Fact: It is our first spiced Gold spirit and our first spiced spirit which is macerated, not distilled, using gin baskets. Due to this process this rum will be cloudy.
