3 The Real McCoy 10-Year Virgin Oak ratings

Sort by: Popularity | Date | Rating

I tried this with the Real McCoy 12-Year, and the Real McCoy Limited Edition 12-Year (a 46% version of the regular 12-year). I like both of the 12-Years better.

It's interesting to me because I'm not a huge fan of bourbon aging, but after a few comparisons of bourbon aging vs virgin cask aging (such as with the Mount Gay Origin Series), I think I prefer bourbon aging to virgin cask aging.

Smells and tastes of oak, caramel, spice, and vanilla. Nicely smooth, and dry/semi-sweet. My favorite Real McCoy is the regular (40%) 12-Year.

Limited edition 10 year. Overall a very nice sipping rum.


(Please forgive me if I've gotten the name wrong; I tried it on it's first day of availability and did not get a chance to see the bottle.)

46% ABV. Sweet nose. Dry. Lots of oak! Long finish.

Great rum. Always a pleasure to try one aged in new oak. Not necessarily my favorite, but very interesting, with easy comparisons to whiskey. A great rum for whiskey drinkers.

8, 8-
