2007 Monymusk 9 Year Old "Golden Devil" Single Barrel Jamaican Rum (750ml)

SKU #1282485

Monymusk is the name of the Jamaican sugar factory near Clarendon distillery where a rum of the same name is produced. While there is such a brand as Monymusk Plantation rum, we don't ever see that label in the U.S. Almost all of Clarendon distillery's rum is sold off to one main contract: Diageo, which uses the Jamaican rum for its European release of Captain Morgan and for part of its Myer's rum formula. That means we almost never get to taste pure, unadulterated, pot-distilled Monymusk in America, despite the growing desire for more aromatic, flavorful and interesting Jamaican rums in our expansive Tiki cocktail culture. Every now and again you'll find an independently bottled cask, but they're often quite pricy and the quality can be unpredictable. This pale straw colored rum is the lightest and most mixable of the three Jamaican casks, but it has a lovely sweetness on the finish that might taste good over rocks with a splash of soda or Coke. The dunder aromas and flavors are dialed up here with earthy notes, bitter fruit, menthol, and savory herbs dominating the profile. It's a homerun for just about any classic Tiki drink, but the potency of the pot still flavor can likely cut through whatever you throw its way.

A unique and delicious Jamaican rum. It is soft and on the dry side with hints of dried fruits. There are also spicy and earthy flavors. In fact, it is the earthy aspects that seem to set apart all of the current K&L Jamaican rum Direct Imports.There is a long finish.

If you're looking for a Jamaican mixing rum, this is the best we've ever carried in the store. The high-ester funk in this Monymusk is balanced and there's only a slight bit of sweetness from the wood. What you have is a wonderfully dry component to make daiquiris with, but it also makes the best rum and Coke I've ever tasted. So much of mass market rum's character is stripped out and then replaced with caramel (much like our processed foods), so if you've never tasted "real" rum, this is a great place to start.
