Review: Brinley Gold Shipwreck Mango Rum

brinley mango - CopyBrinley Gold Shipwreck Mango rum is one of five rums made in St. Kitts.  At 69 square miles St. Kitts is the smallest Country in the Western Hemisphere.  Brinley rum was created when after 20 years Bob Brinley closed his medical supply business and the Brinley’s were looking for a way to stay on the island of St. Kitts.  They set a mission of creating the smoothest natural flavored rums.  They began selling their molasses based column distilled rum in 2002.  In 2012 they rebranded the line to include the Shipwreck name to honor the recent discovery of a British ship sunk off the coast of St. Kitts, by the French during the battle of Frigate Bay in 1787.  Brinley rum is aged in bourbon oak barrels for four years.  Natural Brazilian mango is blended before bottling at 72 proof.
