Barrel Notes: Barrel P5 is a special cask at Privateer - it was the 5th cask we filled. It has been loved and well used for almost as long as we’ve been barreling rum. Because the char on the barrel has been used a number of times over the last eight years, the rum this cask yielded has a beautiful sun ray hue to it. In the distillery, we call these pale casks 'Pale Queen' as they do not have excessive oak character; instead, the flavors highlighted are gained from maturity with subtle complexity from a measured amount of soft vanilla and toast from oak influence.

A house favorite, a Pale Queen barrel is a great way to experience the original spirit that went into the cask, and feel what the distiller was feeling the day they distilled it.
