Privateer Rum-Queen's Share "Bottle in Bond" Rum #110
Age: 4 years, 4 months
Matured In: New American Oak Bottles
Notes: Richly textured, deep, and layered with macadamia nuts, dried golden pineapple, singed cinnamon, walnut, tobacco, and brûlée. The luscious texture brings powerful weight and the finish lingers and perfumes the back palate with toasted hazelnut, honey, and green figs. Defined by its density and heft, this rum is still knit with the energy of 100 proof and avoids becoming spread; showing elegance and grace for the power. Details: The history of Bottled in Bond is rooted in transparency and truth in labeling, an issue we at Privateer are passionate about. Back in the 1800’s bartenders and spirits lovers were angered that so many products on the market were branded as authentic hand-crafted spirits but were in fact made by large factory spirits ‘rectifiers’ and packaged in a disingenuous way. The US Government responded in 1897 by issuing the regulations for labeling a product Bottled In Bond. The spirit must be distilled by a single distiller, in a single season, at a single distillery and aged no less than 4 years at a federally bonded warehouse and bottled at 100 proof at the same distillery.
