Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
(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.
