Beer Review – Innis & Gunn Rum Aged

By Boozedancing @boozedancing

Innis & Gunn Rum Aged

This review of the Innis & Gunn Rum Aged is Beer Review #2 of the three Innis & Gunn beers we received in the mail a few weeks back. At first I thought that Limpd had already reviewed this one, but upon closer inspection, it appears that he reviewed the Innis & Gunn Rum Cask. What’s the difference between the Rum Aged and the Rum Cask? I’m glad you asked! Here are two big differences:

  • ABV: Rum Aged = 6.8%; Rum Cask = 7.4%
  • Barrel Aging: Rum Aged = Aged in oak barrels with rum infused oak chips; Rum Cask = 30 days in American oak + 30 days in Navy rum barrels

Now that you know how they differ, let’s get to my impressions of the Innis & Gunn Rum Aged…

When compared to the Innis & Gunn Original, I thought that the Rum Aged was lacking in oomph. The nose is all dried fruit with maybe a hint of dark rum, but other than that, I didn’t get much else. The flavor is more or less the same, i.e. there’s a good bit of sweet malt. Period. End of story. This wasn’t a bad beer, it just wasn’t very inspiring. I will say this though, it was a really pretty pour…
