200L ex Beenleigh Rum Barrels
200L ex Beenleigh Rum Barrels
$449.95 inc GST

These barrels originally started off as Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels, and were then shipped to Beenleigh Distillery, Australia’s oldest registered distillery, to be filled with rum.  The exact date of each of their first fills isn’t know, but chatting with the master distiller, he confirmed that they would’ve been first filled in the 1990s. And boy, can you smell it!

We took a couple of bungs out today and breathed in 20+ years of rum maturation. The aromas are of intense Rum and Raisin, with hints of vanilla, and a good dose of 5-spice thrown in as well. They smell utterly amazing. The last batch of Beenleigh Rum barrels have been used to mature both spirits and beer, and the feedback from both camps has been sensational.

These barrels are 200L, STRICTLY LIMITED QUANTITY - 4 ONLY! and priced to SELL OUT FAST!
