The Schtick: Produced using a percentage of blackstrap molasses, Bully Boy Boston Rum is distilled by Bully Boy in MA. Known for using more heads than usual, this set of releases has been through quite a few batches – this one was Batch 57. This was tasted blind, and a reveal was provided when I handed in my notes. Let’s dive in.

Review #1374 | Rum Review #89

Distiller: Bully Boy

Bottler: Bully Boy

Brand: Bully Boy

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Rich pecan, toffee, musty baking bread, sweet raisins and toffee, sticky and rich. No ethanol.

Taste: Honey, honey dew, toffee. Super sweet, some nice barrel character. Over time molasses, brown sugar, root beer all deliver, with a light pepper structure. Sweet, but not cloying. Rummy.

Finish: Short again, but sweet and rich. Faint heat, wisps away cleanly as it exits. Sweet, though, lots of maple, some fruity wine notes and a load of brown sugar.

Overall: This is nice – a hair sweet, but not bad. Could use a boost in proof to give it a little more presence on the palate,but overall it was nice. This might be Barbados in origin, but I’m not sure. I’d guess its around the 10-12 year mark, if I had to. Maybe 46% ABV, max.

Thanks for reading!
