An amazing fourteen-year-old Barbadian Rum bottled pure and strong.

"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.

There are three core offerings in The Real McCoy lineup — the three year clarified, the five year, and the twelve year. But they have issued a few special limited edition releases that always get a lot of attention. And they are always tricky to get due to short supply. The Real McCoy 14 Year Old Rum is the latest and it is — in a word — fantastic. It is the same core Spirit in the five and twelve-year-old releases — a combination of column and pot distilled molasses Spirits from Barbados. And it has been aged in ex-Bourbon casks as well. But this fine dram has spent a few extra years in the barrel and is bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. And that’s a difference worth tasting.

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
Burnished Copper

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is light, but also deep and complex with notes of vanilla and coconut cream over a range of dried fruits with a light whiff of barrel char.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is seductive and a bit addictive with a complex mixture of Bourbon-like notes — vanilla, toffee, and apricot — dancing over more coconut cream, raisins, and baking spices.

Finish
The finish is long and warm and velvety with lingering fruit and cinnamon notes.
