A special release of a two and a half year old version of our Blackstrap Rum.
Aged first in an ex-Bourbon barrel for a little over a year and a half, then finished in a heavily charred virgin oak cask. This rum is part of our learn-by-doing experimentation with different barrel treatments. We've monitored this one closely as it's developed, and will apply the lessons learned across our barrel aging program.
The intensity of blackstrap flavour in this rum is more similar to the unaged blackstrap than the single-barrel rums aged in once used casks. While the barrel aging has added vanilla, caramel, baking spices, and smoky notes to the spirit, and rounded the edges, it hasn't much affected the flavour of the molasses.
Try this puppy in a Dark n' Stormy, or any recipe with punchy tropical flavours like ginger or lemongrass.
As always, no artificial colour or flavours added - what goes into the barrel, goes into the bottle. Also not dosed with additional sugar or molasses.
Not chill filtered, sediment may appear.
