The website boasts using virgin barrels for aging.... as if that was a plus. As you’d expect, it lacks depth. I appreciate there’s no fake sweetness from added sugar. It’s inoffensive, but I won’t remember it
The folks at Muddy River hooked me with their Spiced Rum, but Queen Charlotte has quickly become my favorite drink to enjoy at the end of the day. If you get a chance to visit their distillery you can try their 4 year Queen Charlotte but until they make that available for distribution this is a great sipping rum.
Picked up/consumed a bottle of this beauty while on vacation in OBX last week. It was so smooth that I grabbed another on the way out of town. Smooth, complex flavors are brought out with a single ice cube or two, or a drizzle of water, but I even found myself drinking it neat on a few occasions. I wouldn't waste it on mixed drinks. Save those for your white rum.
Buy with confidence. This one's the real deal.
Queen Charlotte is a great barrel aged rum. I'm amazed it gets its color from only a year of aging. It is very smooth and easy to sip. I also like to mix with ginger beer and a twist of lime. This is an excellent rum!
I have to say for a very young rum this is pretty tasty. Muddy River is really making some great rum for being the oldest rum distillery in NC at 11 years. This rum shows some awesome talent. It's smooth and has carmel and oak flavor with that perfect sweet rum note. You could do a lot worse in this price range.
As a North Carolina Native I'm very proud to say this is distilled in my home state. Very smooth and complex on the rocks. A wonderful bouquet on the nose and in the mouth a nice balance of vanilla, toffee and caramel. Salute!
