Tasting Notes

This was laid down by the Smuggler's Cove Rumbustion Club on their visit to Ipswitch, MA. Martin and I tasted through our lineup of samples blind because we knew their cask would be in the lineup and we wanted to evaluate it un-biased. Turns out it was also the finest cask in our selection so we had no conflict in deciding what to purchase! The Queen' Share designation comes from an old tradition that held back the very best barrels for royalty. However, this special moniker doesn't just mean a cask selection. It takes a special collection of the richest cuts during distillation. As the hearts cut nears the tails the spirit takes on additional power and intensity of flavor. These "seconds" cuts are collected and redistilled together, releasing the best the spirit has to offer. This single batch, single barrel experssion is the Queen's Share. This royal expression also marks the first time that a Privateer barrel is available in California. Aged in new American oak, #3 char. Only 221 bottles produced.

    We don't see a huge quantity of rum being made on the east coast of the USA, and even fewer of this quality. Sweet notes abound with molasses, maple, and coconut at the helm, but the cask strength gives it a bit of a bite also. With a creamy mouthfeel and vanilla bean accents from the oak, this feels like a hearty, spicy rum perfect for heading into the chillier months.

    Made from a combination of evaporated cane juice crystals, boiled brown sugar, molasses, and a careful distillation, the Queen's Share is an opulent drinking experience. The texture of this rum is remarkable. While the aromatics are robust, brimming with dry oak spice and supple vanillians, it's really the body that will catch your attention. It is luscious. Graceful, yet commanding. The palate is a combination of candied nuts, toasted coconut, caramel, and an underpinning herbal quality that keeps things from feeling too sweet. The finish lasts for minutes. This is wonderful on its own, but also perfect to add body and length to any cocktail.
