What are “Uncharted Rums”? These are rums I have not yet had the pleasure of reviewing. This is my way to highlight and promote great rums from around the world that might be unfamiliar to most rum shoppers. So until I am able to review each of these rums they shall remain “Uncharted” to me.
We aren’t doing anything different, just better. – Jersey Artisan Distilling
Today’s uncharted rum comes from New Jersey’s first licensed, post-Prohibition distillery, Jersey Artisan Distilling. Based in Fairfield, New Jersey, they produce Busted Barrel Dark Rum and Busted Barrel Silver Rum. They released their first batch of artisan rum back in 2013.
Busted Barrel is produced from high-quality Louisiana molasses and other all-natural, domestically grown ingredients. Their custom-made copper stills create small-batches of artisan rum.
Busted Barrel Silver Rum an unaged rum that is carbon filtered giving it a crystal clear appearance and smooth taste.
Busted Barrel Dark Rum is aged in charred, white American oak barrels for approximately three months with a handful of vanilla beans.
Both Busted Barrel Rums are bottled at 40% ABV (80 proof). Silver’s MSRP $24/750ml; Dark’s MSRP $34.99/750ml.
