Today I picked up a case of Finlagin "blue label" at Trader Joe's.
I combined 6, 750ml bottles of said Finlagin along with 1.75 liters of 191 proof Everclear to boost the overall proof. All this was put in a 2 gallon, toasted barrel for ageing. The barrel I used this time was the one previously used for the Rum re-barrel project a while back.
The 500ml bottle sitting on the counter was the remaining rum that was left in the barrel after dumping that same bottle in there 2-3 weeks ago...you can see how much the angels took in just a short time. Greedy suckers!
Rumor has it that Finlagin in the blue label bottle is from the Caol Ila Distillery.
