Widow Maker (Rum Barrel Aged Black Widow)
This is a 2012 edition Black Widow Porter aged for 75 days in a 'Three Rocks' rum barrel, then cold-conditioned for another 45 days. This well-traveled barrel started out aging 'Hogshead' Whiskey for 3 years, and then it was used to condition the new 'Three Rocks' rum for 6 months. This version of the Widow Maker starts with a sweet booziness of spiced rum on the nose followed by robust notes of vanilla, dark chocolate and dark fruit and further spirited with ethereal wisps of caramel and licorice. Both substantial and sublime, this rare elixir is sure to slake the most fiendish of thirsts.
