Cartel Hour by Cask Cartel 27: The Real McCoy - Barbadian Rum with Nathan Hazard
Play • 1 hr 12 min

The Real McCoy, was he a man, myth or legend? Was Barbados the true birthplace of Rum? What do age statements on a bottle of the sugarcane distilled spirit really mean? Does a beard make you a rum master?


Nathan Hazard exploded onto the rum scene through his underground tiki parties and went on to become the brand ambassador for Real McCoy Rum, single blended rum that captures the authentic experience of the original rum runner during the prohibition era.


We talk about the entire lineup of Real McCoy as well as a special tasting of early distillate through a pipette into our glasses to a selection from their special rare releases.
