24 Days of Rum (#19) – Khukri XXX Rum (Nepal)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 19, 2019

Normally, if one takes a trip to Nepal, where it is an actual trip or as in this case an imagined one, the assumed destination would be Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world in terms of elevation. But in my case, I am heading to Kathmandu, the Capitol, to taste some rum.

Khukri XXX Rum is produced by Nepal Distilleries Private Limited who began to produce spirit in Kathmandu in 1959. In the beginning, Khuri began distilling alcohol using traditional pot stills from the late 1800s (Those initial pot stills are now on display in the distillery). However the company has modernized production and now uses a 3 column distillation and they have replaced they use of oak barrel aging with the use of special wooden oak vats for maturation of their molasses based distillate.

Here is a link to my tasting notes and scores for the No. 19 spirit in the 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box:

Review: Kukri XXX Rum

“… Dark brown sugar, cinnamon toast, molasses with hints of dark licorice and menthol, and almond …”

Chimo!

Note: 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box produced by 1423 World Class Spirits contains 24 handpicked rums from 24 different countries all over the world. It features an extraordinary opportunity to sample a wide variety of premium rums allowing you to hone in on the particular style which suits your palate. As indicated in my previously published review (here) This Rum Advent Calendar is a highly recommended gift for the rum enthusiast.
