This local rum is batch #13 and from barrel 22. We purchased this on our first visit at the distillery. This barrel strength rum is at 57% abv. Looks like a syrupy amber colour. You can smell the molasses, but more of the charred barrel and some nice fruitiness. Apricots, raisins, apples with a warming alcohol and caramel notes. The mouthfeel is quite warming because of the high alcohol content. The flavours have less of the charcoal hints, more like a nice rum but with a killer long bite from the alcohol. Quite intense to have a lot, but a great winter warmer.
