"Queen's Share Rum is Maggie's Farm award-winning reserve spirit made exclusively from the tail runnings of their normal cane rum distillations. Being heavier than alcohol, the flavor and aroma compounds boil off the still in a higher concentration at the end of the distillation cycle. These tail runnings are then re-distilled on their own, creating a more flavorful and complex spirit. This version is a blend of two Queen's Share batches, one finished in rye whiskey casks and the other in Oloroso sherry butts from Jerez, Spain."-Maggie's Farm. So, this bottle looks to have some pretty unique qualities to it. Let's see how it is.
Rich honey, werthers caramels, oak, ethanol. Light toffee and a nice fruity essence. Some clove.
Medium mouth feel, some heat. Sweet caramel, pecan, toffee, amaretto. Lightly floral.
Long and rich, loaded with oak, toffee and caramel. Light banana. Some strong ethanol here. Lightly funky.
This was delightful and unique, and impressively good for a craft producer.
