Barrell Rum Sercial Maderia Finish #J601 Private Release Rum
60% Blend of Hamden and Worthy Park, 40% Barbados, Guyana and Martinique”
Finished in Sercial Maderia Cask
The first in our Private Release Series is our Barrell Private Release Rum. This was a project in detailed blending, on a scale small enough to allow extreme precision. Each release is a unique blend of rums from Barbados, Jamaica, and Guyana, as well as rhum agricôle from Martinique. Once created, these blends are married in single casks, many of which were previously used for other spirits and/or wines. This is the first time in our company’s history that we have offered “micro” blends to the public.
The Private Release Rum Series lets us exercise our blending expertise while maintaining a single barrel-like scale controlled entirely by hand and by palate. Our goal is always to maximize the best attributes of each component. Every ounce of every ingredient changes the overall character of these blends, as does the barrel that each one is aged in. For that reason, these rums take months to polish and perfect. While we may be able to replicate the recipe for these releases, the unique nature of each ingredient and the barrel they are married in makes every bottling singularly special.
An excellent blended rum. Funky, fruity, and potent! I would strongly advise giving this a generous dollop of water and a long rest after pouring into the glass. The proof is simply too high to be fully enjoyed without dilution. The price from Chip's was affordable ($10-$15 cheaper than most Barrell Private Releases) and shipping was timely. Very pleased!
