Big Spring Spirits Barrel-Aged Rum
Big Spring Spirits // Pennsylvannia, USA
This rum is made from "Caribbean Fancy Molasses" in a LEED Gold-certified Pennsylvania distillery. It's aged in new oak for one year, and the resultant color is dark straw.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"The nose offers up a slight woodiness from new oak, trumping any serious vanilla but teasing with whiffs of dill. The palate is prettier--still woody but balancing the oak with caramel and a touch of heat and smoke; contemplative sipping is rewarded with some spice, including black pepper. The finish is short but not as hot as the somewhat elevated proof might suggest.."
