Tasting Notes

Rum Fire is made from a blend of molasses and dunder, natural airborne yeast, then then fermented in cedar vats for 10-14 days (most rums usually ferment for about 36 hours).  This is a major component to the complex flavor profile.  The addition of a dose of “dunder” from the “muck pit” helps lower pH, conserve liquid, provides yeast nutrients, and helps concentrates esters–an integral component indicative of the style that is Hampden Estate and Rum Fire through & through. This funked out fermentation takes place in a record-setting 18 open air Jamaican cedar casks.  Clocking in at a traditional Jamaican 126-proof, this rum is truly THE FIRE!
