Barrell Craft Spirits Rum (Limited Edition - Gray Label)
The idea behind Barrell Craft Spirits is to “explore the unique effects of different distillation methods, barrels, and aging environments, and bottle them at cask strength.” This is accomplished through outstanding relationships within the tightly-knit whiskey community and sourcing the best whiskies available without compromise. By definition, the bottlings of Barrell Spirits are limited in nature with new releases hitting the market frequently. Barrels are sourced from around the country (and the world) & shipped to Barrell’s facilities in Kentucky for additional aging and bottling.
The casks used for this blend of 13 to 21-year-old vintage rum were on an Atlantic voyage that spanned almost a year before Barrell got a hold of them. They selected equally exciting but drastically different barrels from Barbados, Jamaica, and Guyana. “We were so excited by these rums that it took us months to decide where to start with the blending. We could have done them on their own as single barrels; instead we experimented with countless combinations and came up with what we think is an outstanding blend of vintage rums.”
