Review: Calico Jack Key Lime Rum

by Jeff Ellingson

Calico Jack Key Lime PieCalico Jack Key Lime rum is one of nine flavored rums Beam Suntory creates under the Calico Jack label.  White Rock Distillery launched this line of rum and originally sold it without the Calico name.  This line of rum was sold with the flavor ahead of the Jack name.  Examples include Coconut Jack, and Mango Jack.  In 1993 White Rock sold Calico Rum and Pinnacle Vodka to Beam.  Calico Jack Key Lime is made with rum distilled in St. Croix at the same distillery where Cruzan rum is crafted.  Natural key lime flavor is added in Frankfort Kentucky where it is bottled at 46 proof.The aroma is key lime, graham cracker, and whipped cream.  The lime Kool-Aid entry is joined by whipped cream building to a tart lime peak.  It fades with lime rum flavor, finishing with key lime pie taste.  At 46 proof this is gentle enough to drink on the rocks.
