Review: Compass Distillers Daily Ration Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 3, 2020

Compass Distillers is located in Halifax Nova Scotia, where Graham, Josh, and David began their distilling journey with a belief that they could create world-class spirits locally. Their artisan Craft Spirits are not imported, they are not blended with generic ingredients, nor are they pumped out of a factory; Rather, they are made from scratch, with locally sourced ingredients.

Compass Distillers Daily Ration Rum is crafted with Crosby’s Molasses and Brown Sugar that is fermented and distilled in small batches. The rum distillate is placed in oak barrels & aged on site at the Halifax Citadel. From the barrel to the bottle, this traditional-style rum derives its colour, character & complexity from the aging process.

Note: It a fact that for over 300 years it was a tradition of the British Navy that each member of the naval crew was issued a daily ration of rum. This tradition began in 1655, and by 1731, the tradition of the daily ration was in general use throughout the British Navy.

Here is a link to my latest Rum Review:

Review: Compass Distillers Daily Ration Rum

“… Rising into the breezes above the glass were light oak spices combined with butterscotch and hints of almond. Orange peel and banana join in as does a light winding impression of grasses and hay. Some baking spices develop as I allow the glass to breathe represented by scents of vanilla, light cinnamon …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with two serving suggestions, the Brooklynite, and the Eastern Compass!
