Bottle Blurb : "One hundred and eighteen years ago, in 1884, in a small quiet street in Bridgetown, Barbados, Valdemar Hanschell bottled the first ever blend of Cockspur Rum. More than a century later, the success that Cockspur still enjoys today is a testament to Valdemar's skill as a Master Blender. As part of this legacy, the intricacies of his blends have been passed down from generation to generation. Today they still remain a fiercely guarded secret, known only to Cockspur's Master Blender and a few select others.
Ageing the best rum takes time, intuition and skill. Every year, a few select barrels are laid aside by our Master Blender. They 'sleep' under his watchful eye for many extra years so they can acquire an unrivaled smoothness, colour and taste which only the best Barbadian rum should possess."
