Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The Real McCoy is a blend of rum produced from the distillation of blackstrap molasses, using a combination of both column and pot stills. The rum is aged for 5 years in Kentucky bourbon barrels, then blended with Bajan spring water.
The Real McCoy rum's heritage is based on the story of Bill McCoy, the pioneer rum runner of the prohibition era. McCoy fueled the Roaring Twenties by delivering over 2 million bottles by sea to New York speakeasies. He became well known for always delivering undiluted alcohol, unlike other rum runners who cut the liquor with prune juice, wood alcohol, or even turpentine, That is why he and his product became known as "The Real McCoy."
À ne pas louper, pour un 5 ans il est très sec et très complexe.
Un vrai bouchon à vis à l'inverse des gammes doorlys et Foursquare.
I'm biased as I truly enjoy drinking Foursquare rums. This is a very good rum. Tastes like a lighter version of the TRM 12 year.
it's a while ago, so do not remember very good. I liked it, not very special.
Very clear aftertaste of bourbon.
A very light, whisky kind of colour too.
Definitely has a spicier flavor than most rums I have tried. Apparently aging it in oak bourbon barrels definitely gives it a slight bourbon flavor making it an interesting hybrid. A bit of sweetness that grows a bit before fading. Not a bad rum but I recommend it as a mixer.
Starts with oak and spice, finishes with burnt sugar. Very smooth. Really tasty straight up, especially after you let it breathe in the glass for a minute. Probably an excellent mixer, but it's delicious as is. Ice? No thanks.
This is a real smooth spicy rum. It has a nice warm sensation to it with slight prickle on the tongue. This leads a moderate finish with a hint of herbal quality behind the spice. Incredibly smooth but does not have that Bajan kick to it that 3 year offers.
They had me at no artificial flavors... Neat, it's a little harsh and medicinal on the uptake. It's positively unbearable when iced for some reason... But it mixes really well with pineapple juice, and the high is quite nice. OK, not great, not a favorite. There's much better for $25 a bottle. Still, I don't regret trying it.
