07 Mar Aged Rum Tasting
Saturday, March 9
1 to 4pm
At the Bar
We have been long time champions of aged rum! This delicious, dark libation has been overlooked due to too many substandard offerings but things are really starting to change! We have a great store pick barrel and a delicious 15 year old from South America.
Papa’s Pilar 24 Year Solera Rum Spanish Sherry Cask Finish
Master blenders created this expression of custom-barreled Papa’s Pilar Dark, with seven different rums up to 25 years old, both pot and column distilled. After solera aging in bourbon barrels, port wine casks and Spanish sherry casks, the rum was further aged in French oak and sherry casks.
El Dorado Special Reserve 15 Year Old Demerara Rum
Opening nosing pass shows deft touches of caramel, honey and molasses. Palate entry is dry to off-dry and mildly honeyed; the mid-palate is stately, medium-bodied and tastes of tar, tobacco, old oak and molasses. Aftertaste is long, bittersweet, brandy-like and tastes of dark caramel.
