Review: Blue Chair Bay Key Lime Rum Cream

Blue Chair Bay Key Lime Rum Cream was recently released.  I have been checking liquor stores shelves for weeks since I first heard of it’s existence.  It is one of eight rum varieties Kenny Chesney has in his Blue Chair Bay product line.  I have enjoyed all of them so far.  Key Lime Rum Cream starts with a white rum base, distilled and aged in oak barrels at the West Indies Rum distillery in Barbados.  The rum is shipped to Rochester New York where real cream, key lime, and other natural flavors are blended before bottling at 30 proof.

Review: Brinley Gold Lime Rum

Brinley Lime Rum - CopyBrinley Gold Lime rum is one of six flavored rums made in St Kitts, the smallest country in the Western Hemisphere, by the Brinley family.  They have been crafting rum since 2002.  The rum is column distilled and aged for four years in oak bourbon barrels.  It is then infused with natural Tahitian lime juice before being bottled at 72 proof.  While I still find Brinley Gold Lime rum on the occasional liquor store shelf, it no longer appears on the Brinley web site, so availability is limited.
