Proof66 Notes

Brinley Gold rums are all made from sugar grown on the island of St Kitts in the Caribbean. They're blended to a relatively low proof of 72. The rums are named for the Brinley family, who aims specifically to craft excellent flavored rums.

Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced Rum is one of a few spiced rums made with aged rum--in this case, BG uses a rum aged for 4 years in oak for the base. The flavors include orange, vanilla, nutmeg, clove and unnamed "exotic island spices." The name "Shipwreck" comes from the purported origin of the recipe, which was a 1782 sunken British vessel.

In their 2010 review, the Beverage Testing Institute called the rum "Very stylish and well made."

The 2011 Wine Enthusiast review suggested waiting for the Brinley Spiced to open up in a glass where "the reward is a sweet, subtly clove- and ginger-spiced spirit with a bitter almond finish."
