Wright & Brown Private Barrel Rum Set
Barrel 27 was distilled on Halloween day, 2015, to around 114 proof, aged in a 225 liter recooped Limousin Oak barrel with a very light char. Half the barrel was drained and a small amount of filtered water was added and allowed to marry in barrel to bring it down to a bottling proof of 99 for Release 1. Big and funky, with intense molasses and smoky barrel char flavor.
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 of 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.
