Cockspur Old Gold Rum
Cockspur // Barbados
Cockspur's West Indies Rum Distillery is located on Brighton Beach in Barbados near the capital city of Bridgetown. It is here that the Stade Brothers perfected their continuous still process for a "crisp" rum finish. The Old Gold is a blend of light and pot stilled rums that are aged in ex-bourbon casks.
Gold RumRum that is often aged, but can also just have caramel-coloring added to provide color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"The entry is pleasant enough with soft brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel apple. However, the finish goes all pear-shaped, as they say, and it starts to taste like a bitter, charred fruit that’s been left too long on the grill (with an astringent aftertaste because it rolled in lighter fluid). This one’s not for sipping neat. If it goes into a cocktail, bury it well."
