Barrell Craft Spirits 13 Year Old Rum
Barrell Craft Spirits Rum 13 Years Age 750ml
Rums from Barbados, Jamaica, and Guyana that were at least 13 years old were blended together at cask strength, which in this case is 124.2 proof. The company’s first Rum, released in 2016, was pretty damn tasty.
On the nose, BCS rum features notes of buttery toffee, ripe plantain, and a slight herbal quality. There’s also a bit of tea and cognac in the background. The palate offers hints of molasses, oak spice, coconut shavings, and vibrant lime zest. Those spices ramp up heading into the long finish, which is as warm as a Kentucky hug. I preferred the rum with a touch of water, which brought about a bit more sweetness.
