Hamilton, Ministry of Rum, New York State Blend
Ed Hamilton has devoted his life to rum, rum education and rum appreciation. After blending Hamilton Navy Strength Rum, a New York bar group asked him to blend a rum to be mixed in their daiquiris. As good as the Navy Strength is, lower proof seems a bit more reasonable sometimes. The lower proof lets the aromas in the rum come through. Look for honeyed stone fruit in the nose followed by smoky hints of caramelized fruit. The first taste reveals smoky cedar, dark fruit, spice and more smoky fruit flavors leading into a long finish with a brine note underlying the smoky wood finish. Try this for your next daiquiris.
This is a blend of Jamaican and Guyana rums.
