The Real McCoy rum comes from the story of Bill McCoy, the pioneer rum runner of the prohibition era. In January of 1920 McCoy was the first to fill a boat with alcohol in the Caribbean, sail it up to New York City and legally act as a floating liquor store three miles offshore. The rum is produced by the highly lauded Foursquare Distillery.
THE FLAVOR PROFILE
Smooth and soft with subtle spicy wood notes. Buttery caramel, hints of coconut, toasted caramel and marzipan are present on the palate. Surprisingly complex for a white rum.
Rum is a liquor made by distilling sugarcane molasses or pure sugarcane juice. The distillate, a clear liquid, is usually aged in oak barrels. Most rums are produced in the Caribbean and the Americas. There are numerous styles of rum and they are typically delineated by region, distillation method, age, and sugar source.
