The Real McCoy 12 Year Old Barbados Rum
The Real McCoy® Rum takes inspiration from legendary Bill McCoy, the pioneer rum runner of the Prohibition era. In January of 1920, McCoy was the first to fill a boat with alcohol in the Caribbean, sail it up to New York City, and legally act as a floating liquor store three miles off shore. McCoy made a name for himself because he delivered only the best quality unadulterated spirits which became know worldwide as The Real McCoy. Produced at the Foursquare Distillery in Barbados this multi award winning collection of rums are completely unadulterated - there are no added sweeteners, flavours, perfumes or chemical stabilisers and only the finest blackstrap molasses and pure Barbados spring water are used. The rum is small batch distilled in a rare artisan combination of copper pot and column stills, then authentically tropically aged in heavy char American Oak bourbon barrels for a full 12 years, resulting in an exceptionally smooth, mature and balanced rum perfect for sipping. To the nose there is buttery oak, earthy notes and spicy dark chocolate. On the palate caramel, complex wood and spice notes, orange zest with a hint of tobacco that leads onto a soft, structured, buttery finish with peppery spice and a hint of smoke.
