St. Nicholas Abbey Rum 10 Year
St. Nicholas Abbey // Barbados
St. Nicholas Abbey has existed as a rum producer in Barbados since the 1700s. The facility was acquired in 2006 by Larry Warren, who gave it a thorough restoration, including re-racking the existing casks. This rum is a combination of column and copper pot stilled rums distilled at the Foursquare Distillery and aged at St. Nicholas Abbey in their high altitude location for a minimum of 10 years. The rum is bottled in an ornate, etched decanter bottle.
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".
"A fine sipping rum as there ever was. Sweet molasses and brown sugar flavors have the essence of sea and smoke that tickle the nose and palate. Sweet baking spices, citrus and espresso work themselves into the finish, which does have some bitterness, but ultimately ends with a kiss of sweetness."
