A pure, unadulterated, and perfectly-aged Barbados Rum that will make your mouth water.

"The Real McCoy" — this phrase has become synonymous with authenticity and quality. Bailey Pryor is a writer and documentary filmmaker who was researching the man behind the phrase — a Rumrunner named Bill McCoy who skirted the edges of the law during Prohibition. The 2012 documentary was titled "The Real McCoy" and it won Bailey five Emmy Awards. But he wasn’t done. He went back to Barbados and struck a deal with Richard Seale of the famous Foursquare Distillery to develop a line of rich, unadulterated Rums that would make ‘ol Bill McCoy proud.

If you know your Rums, the stats pretty much tell the whole story. The Real McCoy 12 Year Old Rum is molasses Spirit — a blend of column and pot distilled Rums. It’s aged a full twelve years in darkly-charred ex-Bourbon casks under the Caribbean sun. Then they bottle it with zero added sugars, flavorings, perfumes, or chemical stabilizers. That’s it, and quite frankly that’s all you really need, right? This rich and complex Rum has won just about every award and recognition you can think of, including a bunch of Double Gold Medals.

SmartassCorner:
Bill McCoy would take his boat to the Caribbean and return to New York loaded with Rum. He’d park the boat strategically — just over the three-mile limit to stay in international waters. He never watered down or added flavorings to his contraband, which earned him a reputation for quality… his products were "The Real McCoy" and his customers would come to him.

Appearance / Color
Warm Mahogany

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is very forward with notes of turbinado sugar, fried yellow plantains, warm oak, and dark chocolate.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The Bourbon casks arrive on the palate with a caramel note over rich chocolate ganache, exotic fruits, orange zest, oak and baking spices, and warm cedar humidor.

Finish
The finish is soft, smooth, and full of flavor — brown butter, charred oak, and a light peppery bite.

I'm a long time bourbon and rye drinker with a bar stocked with over two dozen varieties. I'd say right now this is my goto. Surprisingly smooth, great to drink neat and has a nice finish.
