Golden amber in colour. Fruity and lightly floral tropical aromas of coconut, banana, and dried pineapple have a buttery toffee note and follow through on a supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with great depth and balance. Finishes with a long, peppery and spicy oak, mocha, coconut, and limestone accented fade. Peppery crescendo although very round and warm giving way to Caribbean cinnamon spice. Great mouth feel getting slightly buttery towards the finish.

Cockspur rum was founded by Valdemar Hanschell in 1884. He was of Danish descent and came to Barbados via the Virgin Islands where he had worked for several years in the ship brokerage business. Settling in Barbados, which had become one of the biggest shipping ports in the Western Hemisphere at that time, he founded a ship chandlery, supplying to visiting ships - ropes, sails, salt, fresh fruit, meat and of course rum. Through the years, business thrived and so too did the popularity of Cockspur rum.
