Rabelo (2020) SOLD
Rabelo is a limited edition released to mark the 7th anniversary of the Molenberg Distillery.
Rabelo cargo boats were used for centuries to transport port casks from the Douro valley to the wine houses in Porto. Rabelo literally means ‘little tail’, a reference to the rudder projecting from the rear of the boat and used to steer. The initial maturing of 36 months in Bourbon casks is followed by a 28-month finish in white port casks. The underlying notes of vanilla, oak and caramel are delightfully supplemented by fruity, slightly spicy flavours and enhanced by a mellow, lingering sweetness.
