OUR SPIRITS ~ Small Batch Rum Series

Small Batch Rum Series

Good things come in small packages, but Manatawny Still Works' Small Batch Rum—aged for a year in new American oak cooperage—exceeds the standard definition of good. Our Small Batch Rum is a special spirit, best enjoyed neat to experience the full range of nuanced flavors and aromas. A perfect amount of sweetness defines this molasses-based, authentic distillation of one of the world's favorite spirits.

A tribute to one of the oldest and most important American spirits, MSW's Batch Rum is an exquisitely rare and respectable offering limited to a select number of barrels.

BATCH #: 06

RECIPE: Blend of Baker's Grade and Black Strap Molasses
BARREL TYPE: 30 gallon, Used Whiskey Barrels
FINISHING: Minimum of two years
PROOF: 94 (bottle)
NOSE: Vanilla, Butterscotch, Banana, Tobacco, Green Apple, Toffee
PALATE: Sweet up Front, Butterscotch, Oak, Caramel, Tropical Fruit Finish: Dry, Spicy
COMMENTS: This two year rum has been aged on new and used whiskey barrels giving it a subtle whiskey edge and well balanced oak character. Complex flavors and aromas evolve the more you sip revealing layers of complex fruit and apricot characters. Enjoy this rum neat or in your favorite cocktails.

BATCH #: 05

RECIPE: 100% Baker's Grade Molasses
BARREL TYPE: 53 gallon New American Oak, #4 Char
PROOF: 137.7 (still), 123.9 (barrel), 94 (bottle)
NOSE: Banana, Vanilla, Oak, Butterscotch, Apricots, Burnt Sugar
PALATE: Banana, Vanilla, Oak, Cream, Rich, Sherry
COMMENTS: You may remember our first release of aged rum last year, this is its older brother. The age on this rum is evident with a more luxurious mouthfeel with similar, but more complex flavors. The oak is prevalent but is complimented well by the boldness of the rum.

BATCH #: 04

#BR06 - 50% Blackstrap Molasses, 50% Baker's Grade Molasses, Finished in a 59 gallon Gardona Winery Cabernet Sauvingnon French Oak Barrel
#BR06 - 50% Blackstrap Molasses, 50% Baker's Grade Molasses, Aged in a 30 gallon used whiskey barrel
PROOF: 118 (bottle)
NOSE: Red Wine, Honey, Molasses, Caramel, Pepper, Chocolate, Cigar, Tobacco, Berry Jam, Leather, Nutty
PALATE: Sweet Wine, Buttery Richness, Molasses, Dark Fruit Juices
COMMENTS: The sweet flavors of the red wine meld with the richness of this Navy-Proof rum, creating a unique and powerful spirit. Best enjoyed neat or in a simple classic rum cocktail.

BATCH #: 03

NOSE: Vanilla, Toffee, Butterscotch, Guava, Passion Fruit, Molasses, Flan- Custard, Ripe Bananas, Almond, Apricot.
PALATE: Sweet, Molasses, Tropical Fruit
COMMENTS: A Navy Proof Rum modeled after the heavy styles of Jamaican and Colonial Rums. It presents a rich, complex nose which opens up to a cascade of tropical fruits and flavors. It's perfect neat, on the rocks, or in a classic daiquiri.

BATCH #: 02

NOSE: Strong Vanilla, Oak, Ripe Bananas, Caramelized Sugar
PALATE: Vanilla, Wine Grapes, Butter, Oak, Dried Fruit, Herbal.
COMMENTS: This raw sugar rum is lighter and indicative of rum from the Spanish West Indies. Aged in used whiskey barrels, vanilla is prominent throughout, with wood sugars adding an herbal balance and a light subtle finish.

BATCH #: 01

NOSE: Banana, Vanilla, Oak, Butterscotch, Raisin, Apricots, Burnt Sugar
PALATE: Banana, Vanilla, Oak, Cream, Rich, Sherry
COMMENTS: Dark amber with woody spice and an upfront sweetness that slowly fades to a smooth balance. An undeniably delightful, full-bodied experience from nose to palate.
