St Abbs Captain"„¢s Table XO comes from newcomers Black Mountain Spirits. They have three rums in the St Abbs range. St Abbs is the brain child of entrepeneur David Owens. David has a recent history in the rum world. He was involved in Takamaka (formerly Takamaka Bay) rum which hailed from the Seychelles.
St Abbs was a three-masted full-rigged wooden vessel. It was launched from the ship yards of Sunderland in 1848, spending her life chartered to the Honourable East India Company. In 1855 it sank along with its cargo which included the finest Caribbean rum destined for India.
St Abbs Captain"„¢s Table XO is a blended rum. Ten rums from Barbados, Trinidad and Guyana are blended together and then further aged in small 200 litre ex-Bourbon barrels and allowed to marry together. The rums contained in the blend are up to 8 years old.
Waves and waves of runny caramel and melted salted butter, with lingering touches of plum and brown sugar.
