( 20 )

Master Distiller Maggie Campbell, previously with the renowned Germain-Robin distillery, has put out a series of expressions that are turning heads in the rum crowd. All Privateer offerings are 100% molasses-based, double-distilled, and aged in full-sized new American oak barrels. Since each cask is unique, your bottle may be a bit different. This particular cask (P88) was aged for just over three years and bottled at 57.7% ABV.

    Aged rum that are often blends of rums from English-colonized countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad, British Guyana, and Barbados. Technically, navy-strength rums are 54.5% ABV or higher, though not all overproof rums are Navy Rums. Taste-wise, Navy Rums are usually rich and funky, and best used in Tiki drinks or punches.

Tasting Notes

"The rum presents a deep copper hue in the glass. The nose is strong with vanilla and wood notes – fresh sawdust or a just-sharpened pencil. As it spreads over your palate, it’s clear this is no shrinking violet. The impact of the new American Oak is strong with full-throated, pot-still flavors, creating a round, harmonious blend that brings to mind high-end Bajan rums. The finish is dry (no sugar added) and trails off with a hint of cola spiciness. Privateer’s Navy Yard is an amazing example of what American rums are capable of in the right hands."
