Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Initially smelling of candied ginger and a tropical fruit cocktail, the rum’s true nature is revealed upon tasting it’s decadent American oak core full of vanilla and slight hints of smoke. Truly a bourbon drinker’s dream. (Apr 2016)
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Finished in “deeply toasted and charred” Bourbon casks, this mouthwatering small-batch rum skews to the sweeter side, offering bold notes of cola, allspice and vanilla, finishing brisk and spicy. Sip straight or mix for the ultimate rum & Coke. - K.N.
The latest from Master Blender Allen Smith, Black Barrel is a small batch, handcrafted blend made of matured double pot distillates and aged column distillates. In a process called finishing, the blended rum is then matured for a second time in deeply charred Bourbon oak barrels. This unique process releases spicy aromas that are at once balanced, and bold.
