Wright & Brown "B+B Exclusive" Barrel #27 Brandy Finish Rum
After half of Barrel 27 was bottled for Release 1, the remaining rum was aged an additional 6 months in two American Oak quarter casks that had previously held California brandy.
Tasting Notes: vanilla, root beer, matches, toffee, baked figs, banana, brown sugar, and funk. Release #2 is definitely more mellow then #1, it’s also more fruity, with a stronger brown sugar note through out. At first the sip feels significantly sweeter, but as it evolves that’s when the similarities with its younger sibling become much more pronounced - the funk and molasses are still very present. The finish of those same molasses and light smoke goes on for ages, with fruit notes never fully fading in the background.
