Double Gold NY WW&SC
This blend of seven rums, with ages up to 24 years old, is aged using the solera method and is then finished in #4 char bourbon barrels from the O.Z. Tyler distillery. I found a lot of pepper on the nose and palate when tasting this rum. Something I wasn’t expecting. I wonder if that could be from the bourbon barrel finish. The brown sugar mixed with the pepper and orange zest provides a unique and deliciously satisfying experience.
This 'Double Gold' release was inspired by the Marquesas Keys, a wild group of mangrove islands where Papa Hemingway learned the craft and lore of the local fisherman, dined sumptuously, and enjoyed rum & whiskey long into the night. The Marquesas Special Blend pays homage to Hemingway's adventures among these uninhabited keys, celebrating the finest rum & whiskey, great friends, and damn good story telling.
