last straw rum

Last straw 6 month blackstrap and 1 year blackstrap

 

Tales of brave dimonte

 

You thought the town of erin

Would house your stills forever

But you hopped inside your beamer

For the violent town of Vaughan

 

And the colours of your rum

Gain the flavour of virgin barrels

As you distill the blackstrap rum

With tales of brave dimonte

 

How his naked eyes were frightened

By the shroeders gonzo writing

For the wailing squirrels are calling you

To nurse them back to health

 

You see your son Brandon

Alchemist of infusion

He takes you passed knowledge

Critics love his gin

 

And you hear from micheal hook

Who shames your mangey squirrel

He opposes your said commitment

And makes you change your mind

 

Yellow corn and rye malt

Run smoothly through your pot still

And you want to take your heart cuts

To the clear glass of your bottles

 

Their names are stein and Bernstein

And they wear the balding crown

You know you cannot beat them

For they have most deft of hands

 

With tales of brave dimonte

How his mustached lip was trembling

When he reads his spirits scores

 

Yellow corn and rye malt

Run smoothly through your pot still

And you want to take your heart cuts

To the clear glass of your bottles

1 year blackstrap rum

Alc. 45.3%

Nose:

Vanilla, tannic, dry wood. Sweet, anise. In comparison, more body and less aggressive than the 6 month. Cigarette tobacco.

Palate:

Thick on the palate, round and fat. Butter rum lifesavers, molasses, spicy anise, cloves and pulling tannins. Some oaky vanilla cake. Finishes with some nice orange pith, ripe strawberries and a little effervescence. Spicy.

Overall:

Not bad at all, in comparison to the younger product. would like to see this with a few more years added on, but this shows a decent understanding of the still used.

Please note:

This rum is crafted from fermented blackstrap molasses, which is the most flavourfull, and least sweet of molasses. It is created from boiling sugar cane and extracting the resulting sugar. The dark blackstrap is the final byproduct, which is commonly used in alcohol production.

This blackstrap rum is fermented with champagne yeast and is distilled twice in a four plate pot/column still. The resulted liquid has been aged in toasted Portuguese barrels for 1 year and 1 day.
