Blacks Spiced Irish Rum 70cl
Blacks Spiced Irish Rum
Located on the Wild Atlantic Way (a scenic route in the south of Ireland), The Blacks Brewery was started in 2013. A family run company, it is owned and operated by Sam & Maudeline Black (hence the name!).
Their ethos was to create (initially) beers which weren't mass market. They wanted products with passion and personality. In 2015 they decided to expand and added a state-of-the-art distillery which allowed them to produce spirits as well. Their first was gin, which was followed in 2018 with the first Irish Rum, and then in 2020 with whiskey.
This cross-over also allow them to age their beers in spirit barrels, and vice versa - adding additional depths of flavour to their drinks.
Blacks made history when they produced Ireland's first ever rum at their distillery in KInsale. Their award winning rum is distilled from start to finish using the finest sugar cane molasses and has been recognised across the world.
Blacks Spiced Irish Rum takes the molasses which are fermented and matured in oak casks, with seven carefully selected spices. The result is a deliciously complex experience.
The inviting aroma of sweet vanilla, butterscotch, cola, banana, coffee and spices are balanced with hints of orange, lime and ripe pear. On the palate, there are the subtle notes molasses, sherry, chipotle and hazlenut, which develop to a more intense flavour of Guatemalan coffee and cracked black pepper, leading to a delicious oak finish.
