This Jamaican rum was blended from rums dating back to 1983. It was then re-casked in oak barrique to allow the blend to further develop and produce a wondeful harmonious balance between the natural aromatics of the rum and the complex influences of the oak casks.
Bottled one cask at a time in April 2011.
A blend of casks from Hampden (see below) and Monymusk. Monymusk like Hampden has Scottish roots and is one of the oldest plantations in Jamaica. In the mid-18th century it was owned by Sir Archibald Grant who also owned a Slaving Station in West Africa which provided labour for his plantation. Traditionally it supplied rum in bulk for blending but the quality of high ester rum from here as always been of the highest.
The Barrique XO was originally blended from rums of between 4 and 23 Year Old and then re-casked for many years prior to bottling.
