Black Barrel Arrives (Ginger Beer, Anyone?)
While we're still waiting on the two single barrels of Mount Gay Black Barrel to arrive, the standard edition is now available at K&L. I'm a big fan of this rum and I think it's really going to appeal to Bourbon fans. Again, if you're getting tired of the standard fare this is great chance to spend relatively little and taste something new, yet familiar. The spice, richness, and overall flavor are classic vanilla, sweet cane, and barrel spice. I could dump this over a glass of ice, sit outside, and finish the whole bottle with ease. We drank this with ginger beer in Barbados and no one was complaining (and that's not because we were being polite to Uncle Remy).
