This was our first ever barrel of Navy Yard recipe. We aged this batch in a third use bourbon barrel to see how the spirit performed with age allowing the mature spirit flavors to show above the oak profile. Obviously we were very pleased and launched the Navy Yard program.
The rum has a pale amber hue.The nose has strong aromas of golden sultana and mineral brine urging you to lean into the glass. Leather, tobacco leaf, and spice box on the palate with golden fruit and dried cherry. Strong minerality and tangy-salt finish with flavors of forest floor. Full bodied and densely structured. The rum evolves in the glass.
