This full-bodied rum is matured in a wooden oak cask for four years. It is produced entirely in traditional pot distills and made from caramelized sugar or molasses. Our rum is aged longer, in heavily charred barrels, giving it a much stronger flavor and taste than light rum. Our rum can be considered midway between light rum and the darker variety. Black Sail has more character and flavor than its "mixing" counterparts and is generally consumed straight. The bottle depicts a classic mermaid the shape of Long Island NY in her body..
