Complex notes of spice, toasted wood, followed by fruit. Bold spice balanced with oaky vanilla and sweet caramel. Warm medium body with long finish. The latest from Master Blender Allen Smith, Black Barrel is a small batch, handcrafted blend made of matured double pot distillates and aged column distillates. In a process called finishing, the blended rum is then matured for a second time in deeply charred Bourbon oak barrels. This unique process releases spicy aromas that are at once balanced, and bold.
