Ron Barcelo Anejo Rum is reminiscent of Toffee, pickling spices and lanolin on the nose. A smooth entry leads to a well rounded, slightly fruity dry medium-bodied palate with roasted nut, dark caramel and vanilla bean. Ending with a delicious buttered nut, spice, caramel fade, Ron Barcelo Anejo rum is hedonistic aged Caribbean rum.
A blend of rums aged in oak barrels for an indeterminate time (up to four years, it turns out), this rum is light on the tongue and still plenty sweet, but offers a solid oak core alongside its sugar. Simple on the attack but that surprisingly long finish makes you think there’s more to it. Tastes more expensive than it is; is actually lighter in color than it looks (due to the smoky bottle).
