Cockspur 5 Star is a golden combination of column and pot-stilled rums matured in American white oak barrels before blending. Coral-filtered water is used from a nearby aquifer to dilute the rum to bottle strength.
The company Cockspur was founded in 1884 by Danish seaman Valdemar Hanschell. Barbados was chosen as a location beccause at the time it was one of the Caribbean's largest shipping ports.
Easily consumable in a bind
Light amber color, some heat, not overly complex and the flavors don't pop out at you. A fair price for a mixer from Barbados. Better than most rums comparable in price. I like that Cockspur uses both the traditional column and pot stills to distill their rums.
There's nothing very special with this one, but it's a good mix and standard bar-rail in Barbados. If you're there, I'd get the far-superior Mount Gay XO instead for not a lot of extra money or the Eclipse for a straight-swap if available.
Inoffensive rum that mixes well and can be drunk neat. Fairly bland flavour and a harsh afterburn but nothing really bad to note.
