In its local Barbadian market, this blend, which was launched to commemorate the brands Centenary in 1984, is still known by its original name, ‘Cockspur V.S.O.R. Vintage Blend’, standing for ‘Very Special Old Reserve’.
This is a blend of light-bodied column distilled rum and full-bodied pot still, molasses-based rums which has been aged in American white oak casks previously used to age bourbon. The casks which make up this rum are selected by the master blender and set aside for a prolonged ageing period. The majority of the rums in this blend are 12 years and older.
