Was able to obtain 6 new 750 American Market single cask plantation rums! Glad to see the Market is increasing greatly for these right now.

Will post pictures and further info as they arrive!

These "single cask" rums are widely available. Many are offered to stores as "exclusives" but if you look around you will find that others stores carry the same rum. The cask will differ but often they are the same blends of rum they are not really single cask - this is arguably no different to most commercial releases.

For the price they aren't bad as they generally aren't that expensive but they aren't "amazing single cask rums" by the true definition.

I did notice a few places had the same blends. I would love to make a trip to London to go to Gerry's. I have opened my Trinidad multi aged in cognac barrels and it is pretty fantastic. I am curious what the hydrometer test would say.

Plantation typically add 16 g/L to their rums sometimes more rarely less. I've tested a fair few on the site if you hit my link.

Just opened a plantation single cask 2004 Belize. Nice and not too sweet. I also have a few bottles of the 20 year XO Barbados which are not single cask but tasty and a lot sweeter than the SC Belize. The SC Belize has a nice balance of port notes, light spice and fruitiness. Not quite a cordial which is nice.
