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.
This Uncharted Rum, Kopper Kettle Dark Chai Spice Rum, comes from Virginia’s Belmont Farm Distillery. Belmont Farm is best known as being the distillers of Moonshiners reality TV star Tim Smith’s Climax Moonshine.
Here is how they describe their new spice rum:
“This rum is a high proof, hand crafted revelation! Our forefathers here in Virginia made rum from sugar they grew on the inter-coastal waterway, or brought it from the ships that came from the islands just a bit further south. Either way, we are reestablishing the tradition of pot distilling our sugar mash, sweetening the rum with brown sugar and adding an assortment of spices that can be found in the East Indies. What we westerners would call “Chai Spice” is something that has recently caught on as a popular taste, and we think you’ll love our colonial style spiced rum.”
