After a long wait, Baker Williams Single Barrel Rum is back for it's second ever edition.

Blackstrap Molasses sourced from the Harwood Mill on the Clarence River in Northern NSW. Fermented, distilled, aged, and bottled in Mudgee.  Aged in a virgin American oak cask with heavy toast char for two years. 

The heavy toast char is a slight departure from the first edition and was chosen for its additive qualities contributing a little more wood character and less of the extractive operations of a heavy char leaving the spirit a little more intact. 

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Deep Auburn

Aroma:  Clove, Cinnamon and Dark Sugar

Flavour: Caramel, glace cherry, sultana and pudding fruits with some pineapple in the back with restrained sweetness tending to dry.  Will make your mouth water in a great way.  This is the 50.2% ABV at work and welcomes the addition of a single piece of ice.

Finish: Good length, with fruit giving way to oak and clove you get on the nose.  The barrel ‘Heavy toast char’ rather than straight char in the first edition is really apparent here. Contributing barrel flavours are Light caramel as in a Strong latte, vs an espresso.

Xmas Pudding gets overdone in rum reviews, but it’s all there:  Fruit, caramel, joy, a spirit of giving and a general absence of anything resembling work.

Serving Suggestions:

  • At your Christmas lunch, this will be a great way to relax into the afternoon.
  • Straight or on ice. Normally, we’d say add as much water as you like, but go slow here.  Add water or ice to taste after your first few small sips.  If icing, use a large cube so you can take your time without over watering it.
  • Tried it in some cocktails in the name of research and were delighted!. Rum flavours stand up strongly in stuff like a Daquiri or the salty goodness of an outrigger. 
  • A short rest (5mins) on pouring will also let the flavours and aromas develop in your glass

500mL  50.2% ABV.  Product of Mudgee, Australia
