Mosquito Fleet Rum
Appalachian Gap // Vermont, USA
Mosquito Fleet Rum is named for the fleet of six-row galleys, built in Vergennes, Vermont, that was essential to the American victory in the Battle of Lake Champlain during the War of 1812. It is a blend of the distillery's base rum and two Caribbean barrel-aged rums. Your best bet at getting a bottle is to visit the distillery itself.
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".
"There's strong barrel spice and cigar box on the nose along with some enticing caramel and dark sugar aromas. The palate shows plenty of sweetness that slightly overshadows the spice and underlying dark fruit complexity. Though the flavors in this rum aren't fully integrated, it swings for the fences and is worth a try for those interested in well-made, domestic craft rums. "
