An 11-year old limited edition Barbados rum with secondary maturation in port casks
available in New York State
New York, NY (October 8, 2020) – In its final release of 2020, Holmes Cay – Single Cask Rum is offering a limited edition Barbados rum with an additional year of secondary maturation in port casks. The Barbados 2009 Port Cask edition reached New York retailers this week.
This blend of column and pot still rum was distilled at the world famous Foursquare Rum Distillery in Barbados. The Barbados 2009 Port Cask was aged 8 years in Barbados and two years in the UK in ex-Bourbon casks. The rum then underwent a further year of secondary maturation and was bottled in New York State, for a total of 11 years of barrel aging. With this release, Holmes Cay – Single Cask Rum celebrates its one-year anniversary since launch and reaffirms its commitment to bring a variety of rare international rums to US spirits lovers.
“The Barbados 2009 Port Cask is our first edition with secondary maturation. The secondary aging complements and highlights the existing character of the spirit,” said Holmes Cay founder Eric Kaye.
The Barbados 2009 Port Cask is now available for sale in New York State.
The Barbados 2009 Port Cask was made with no added sugars, colors or other adulteration, and is bottled at cask strength — 56% alcohol by volume.
“The Barbados 2009 Port Cask is Holmes Cay’s fourth and final offering of 2020. With each of this year’s highly collectible editions, we try to show another aspect of what makes aged rum so special,” said Kaye.
The Barbados 2009 Port Cask carries a suggested retail price of $129 (750ml bottle). For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
