After a few months hiatus, we now have the St. Augustine Rum back in stock! And, just in time for the holidays. The St. Augustine Rum is made from a mix of sugarcane syrup and molasses. The whole process, from fermentation to distillation is done at the distillery in St. Augustine, FL. After distillation, the rum is aged in used bourbon barrels for up to 4-months. This adds complexity and additional notes of vanilla and spice.
We also received a small allocation of "The Saint" from St. Augustine Distillery. The Saint starts with the Florida Straight Bourbon. At the same time, St Augustine sends their barrels to a producer to use to make their Old Fashioned mix. This pre-made cocktail mix ages in bourbon barrels for 9-months. The barrels are then sent back to St Augustine. Some of the oldest barrels in the warehouse were dumped into these Old Fashioned barrels to finish.
The blend of flavors from this unique aging process is incredible. There are notes of chocolate, orange peel, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It's sweet up front but complex through the taste. The finish is long with notes of dried cherries and oak.
