Product Description

Barbados Rum, double matured in Cognac casks! American oak barrels play host to this rum where it ages for three to four years. Next, a subtle spice and nutmeg palette is drawn out in Ferrand Cognac's casks as the rum continues to mature for one to two years in Cognac, France. The result is a round and elegant Barbados rum, excellent as a sipper or an all-rounder base for aged or 'gold' rum cocktails like punches, daiquiris, and tiki classics.

    This is a 5/5 rum, especially at under $30 a bottle. Terrific for mixing.

    I chose this rum after consulting an online database for rum, and chose it based on its high rating. I was not at all disappointed! This is a great rum for both sipping and mixing - it has strong flavors of vanilla and baking spices, is sweet, and has no bite at the end. It's delicious but not overly cloying or candy-sweet.

FAQs

Aged rum is older rums that have matured and lost a bit of the original liquid from evaporation, but have a more complex character than unaged rum. That amount of liquid that evaporates during aging is affectionately called the 'angels share'.
The best way to drink anything is the way that you like it. If you're looking for a suggestion - try it the same way you would whisky. Often rum is drank with a bit of water in it, or an ice cube or two. This gives rum the best sipping experience.
This depends. Often, rum is required to age for at least one year. However, rums are aged for differing years which attributes to changes in color and flavor. White rum is aged for the least amount of time, where dark rum is aged for some time.
Rum is aged in oak casks - commonly bourbon casks, but sometimes wooden casks or stainless steel tanks. Each distiller is different - so its always a good idea to read how they age their rum for a full understanding of the product.
