Hamilton St. Lucia Cask Strength 8 Year Old Rum
The story from Mr. Ed Hamilton: "In the twenty years I lived on a yacht sailing the West Indies I really enjoyed drinking some great white rums. Back in the US, I missed that clean, fresh flavor of aged molasses-based rum that had been carbon-filtered to remove the color gained during a few years spent aging in oak barrels in the tropics. In addition to the fresh flavor of the rum there was also a slight coconut note generally attributed to the American oak barrels in which these rums were aged. Like so many things those rums that I enjoyed in the '90s are no longer made." Hamilton now makes his own single island, authentic rums. Distilled and aged in St. Lucia, the rum is then shipped to the U.S. in the same casks it aged in.
