Tasting Notes

Distilled at the legendary Long Pond and aged for just under 22 years in ex-Bourbon barrels before an additional 2yrs in ex-Ferrand Cognac casks and a final finish in an ex-Rye cask from Brooklyn's New York Distilling Company. Distilled from 100% molasses on the distiller's legendary double retort John Dore copper stills, yielding an extremely high ester rum. Bottled at natural cask strength with zero additives or artificial ingredients with a total ester count of 280 grams per hectoliter and 1133 volatile compounds g/hl. This is simply one of the best rums we have been able to offer in years. Available for a limited time.

Staff Pick Notes

I often wish I had a teleportation device, especially these days. Since flying to the Caribbean is out of the picture for the time being, the next best thing to transport you to the tropics is the liquid inside this bottle. Simply opening this bottle offers an aromatic experience like only a well made Jamaican rum can. Super ripe tropical fruit jumps right out and is underpinned by caramel and vanilla, beckoning you to take a sensory journey. The buoyant aromas carry through on the palate along with a saline hint and a bright, citrusy finish. The hallmark of estery Jamaican funk is undeniable. I think a small ice cube or a few drops of water make this rum shine even more. I'd be happy to watch the sunset anywhere with a glass of this in my hand...I can almost feel the sand between my toes.
