After meeting a few Distillers, there is nothing like hearing them talk about their rum. To m, not unlike speaking of a loved one who you wish to impress the stranger and endear them to the very things you find endearing. That in mind here is a note from Jay McCain, Master Distiller of Richland Rum:
"Our rum has a robust structure and a deep precious gold color. The first aromas that present itself reveal caramel, vanilla and espresso."
"The palate distinctly introduces sweet sugar cane aromas with balanced notes of tobacco and field flowers, which combine well with the tannins of oak barrel aging and a dark chocolate finish."
- Jay McCain
You have to admit - a man who loves his work.
Can't leave without attaching this yummy sounding drink recipe:
1 1/2 oz. Richland Rum
1/2 oz. Art in the Age Snap
2 bar spoons brown sugar
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Place Rum, Snap, Bitters, and Brown
Sugar in Mixing glass and shake with ice.
