Busted Barrel Dark Rum
Jersey Artisan Distilling // New Jersey, USA
Registered as the first distillery licensed in New Jersey since Prohibition, Jersey Artisan Distilling was founded in 2010 by engineer Brant Braue and attorney Krista Haley with a desire to craft a truly exceptional rum in the heart of North New Jersey, and thus Busted Barrel was born. They create their dark rum from 100% Louisiana molasses the rum is aged 12-18 months in new American oak barrels.
Dark RumAKA Black Rum. Usually aged (but not always) and has additional caramel-coloring added to provide the dark/black color. Some are distilled from blackstrap molasses. No specific type or size barrel required for aging nor is there a set time required for aging in most countries with a few exceptions.
"This dark rum is more a ruddy, burnished gold. On the nose are ripe bananas and cinnamon. Busted Barrel is clean and crisp with citrus and brown sugar and lingering hints of crème brûlée on the finish. Jersey Artisan Distilling does an excellent job of positioning the Busted Barrel as a punch-perfect drink."
