PX Rum, a version of the base used in their First Run Rum that’s aged in both lightly toasted and charred new oak barrels and then finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks before it’s bottled at 92 proof. Total aging time is over one year.
Maple Cask Rum, a version of the base used in their First Run Rum that’s aged for six to eight months in used rum barrels that previously aged maple syrup from Wood’s Vermont Syrup Company. Bottled at 92 proof.
Mad River Vanilla Rum, a version of the base used in their First Run Rum that’s diluted to cask strength and then infused with Tahitian vanilla beans in stainless steel tanks for two-and-a-half months. Bottled at 80 proof with no added sugar or artificial flavors.
