Proof66 Notes

Bundaberg Distillery was briefly bankrupt and re-formed under the ownership of AP Barton, F Buss, and FL Nott and the "Master Distiller's" editions are named in their honor. Bundaberg Double Barrel is their fifth release in the series. The "double barrel" refers to a final aging/finishing in each a sherry wine barrel and a port wine barrel. This will give the rum a slightly red cast to the otherwise dark-amber liquor. The technique of finishing in wine casks is a method often used in highland single malt scotch and, to our mind, will give the rum a rich, grape aroma and flavor profile. Bundaberg suggests looking for notes of honey, caramel, and spice. 

Bundaberg Rum Distillery is said to have founded in 1888 where they say a band of sugar producers grouped together to do something about their over-supply of molasses. It is named for the Bundaberg region of Australia, which produces the sugar cane used for the molasses and rum production. The distillery is located right next to the sugar mill and the molasses source. They ferment with their own yeast strains and use a double-distillation process first in a continuous column still and then in a traditional copper pot still. The name is often shortened to "Bundy." The distillery was acquired by liquor giant Diageo in 2000.
