Barrell Craft Spirits 14 Year Old "Release 2" Cask Strength Caribbean Rum (750ml) (Previously $250)

SKU #1499499

This, the second release of their Craft Spirits Rum, is a blend of Jamaica, Demerara and Barbados, distilled in the Caribbean and blended in Kentucky. Bottled at a blistering 129.4 proof, fewer than 150 bottles are available in California. Tasting notes from the bottler: "Nose: The esters are so concentrated and varied that the aroma presents first with the unmistakable monolithic smell of funky Jamaican rum. Slowly, the Barbados and Demerara rums drive a wedge into the funk and focus the profile first around berries and flowers. There’s a fatty element at times reminiscent of tahini or browned butter. A kiss of wood spice, sauna and nutmeg is present. Palate: The alcohol keeps the sweetness in check, the tannins are modest and sandy. Tthe flavors mirror the nose: Blackberry, rosehip, nutmeg, tahini. The mineral side really shines and gives a maritime feel: crushed oyster shell, kelp, fried clams, dry vermouth. Finish: The tropical fruits pop, with lime zest, lychee, navel orange, and pineapple. Some soft resinous touches of mastic and pine pitch. A hint of savory enoki mushroom and sweet crab meat. With a splash of spring water: The nose’s complexity extends: saffron, sumac, tomato, wintergreen. The palate becomes rich and sweet, tasting of nougat, honeydew melon, and green grape. The finish explodes with spices, fresh ginger, salmiak, juniper and hibiscus."
