Barbados was one of the first places where sugarcane became a booming rum industry. It was here in 1884 that Danish seafarer Daniel Hanschell founded Cockspur. Fine rum is the company’s entry level rum, made from local cane molasses and “gently aged” in American oak and brought to proof with coral-filtered water.

Tasting Notes

"Initially, there is a pleasant buttery vanilla, brown sugar and herbal flavor of a classic young rum. However, the finish has a perceivable acetone quality that can't be ignored. This is no sipping rum, but would stand up fairly well in cocktails if there is need to mix them on a budget."
