Nice and even. Light smoke, pepper, and oak on the pallet. A good sipper or for a bold daiquiri.

Aroma of almonds, vanilla, wood and bananas. In taste you can find sweet fruits and smoke.

This rum is a light savory rum. It´s flavor is al smoked sugar. It feels pure.
For those who prefer to mix, it the best rum to mxx with coconut water. WHat PuertoRicans call Patria Libre (cousin to the CubaLibre)

Der Ron del Barrilito ist ein Blend aus Puerto Rico und wurde ca. 6-10 Jahre in Bourbon Eichenholz Fässern gelagert. Der Rum wird nach altem Familien Rezept hergestellt und ihm wird etwas Ursprüngliches nachgesagt. Er wird mit 43% Alkohol abgefüllt. Die Flasche ist eher schlicht und nicht ansprechend. Sie erinnert etwas an eine "Fusel" Flasche.

Nach dem ersten Aufschrauben der Flasche kommt erst einmal der Schock. Scharfe Alkoholnoten irritieren. Es wird schnell klar das der Rum atmen muss. Nach 10min gibt sich der Rum dann verändert. Man kann Noten von Vanille, Eichenholz und Rauch wahrnehmen. Im Mund ist der Rum vollmundig und lebendig. Eckig und direkt gibt er viele Fass und- Rauchnoten ab. Eine trockene Süße mit Vanille Noten runden den Geschmack ab. Der Rum ist Scharf und muss bewusst getrunken und genossen werden. Der Nachklang ist mittellang rauchig mit Holznoten.

Für Freunde trockener Rums ist der Barrilito ein Muss. Der Rum wird mit jedem Einschenken besser. Der Rum muss atmen und benötigt Zeit. Viel Holz und Rauchnoten machen ihn würzig und er wirkt sehr authentisch. Wer z.B. Mount Gay mag sollte hier das Geld investieren. Es ist kein milder Rum. Aber es macht Spaß sich mit ihm auseinander zu setzen und ihn verstehen zu lernen. Hier passt sogar irgendwie der Drehverschluss. Eben Ursprünglich.

The Ron del Barrilito is a blend from Puerto Rico and was stored in bourbon oak barrels for about 6-10 years. It is said that the rum is made from an old family recipe and it has something original. It is bottled with 43% alcohol. The bottle is rather simple and not appealing. It reminds me of a "booze" bottle.

After the first screw-on of the bottle comes the shock. Sharp notes of alcohol irritate. It quickly becomes clear that the rum has to breathe. After 10min, the rum changes. You can see notes of vanilla, oak and smoke. In the mouth, the rum is full-bodied and lively. Cornery and direct, it gives you many barrel and smoke notes. A dry sweetness with vanilla notes complete the taste. The rum is sharp and must be consciously drunk and enjoyed. The reverberation is medium-long smoky with wood notes.

For lovers of dry rum, the Barrilito is a must. The rum gets better with each pouring. The rum needs to breathe and takes time. A lot of wood and smoke notes make it spicy and it looks very authentic. Those who like Mount Gay, for example, should invest the money here. It's not a mild rum. But it's fun to deal with him and learn to understand him. Somehow even the rotary lock fits here. Just original.

Better than most Bacardis and my fav for sipping in PR

IF you can get it, this is an excellent rum for mixing. (not a sipping rum) Personally I don't believe that just because a recipe calls for a specific rum, like silver for instance, that you MUST use that rum. This rum makes outstanding Cuba Libre, Pina Colada.. etc.

This is exactly what I imagined but didn't know I wanted when I first was introduced to "aged, sipping rums"... When I first tasted this rum, the amazing balance of sugar, oak, spices and alcohol blew my socks off. If we could afford it, we would keep a bottle of this around persistently, to sip on of an evening, to relax and let the stress of the day just slide away.

Had this on vacation in old San Juan, PR. One of the most complex flavors I have tried.
Starts with the aroma. Florid, and smooth. Flavors that really stand out. It is a young rum, so a little harsh. Be sure to let it stand for a moment before tasting.

Mostly drunk in PR it does not get exported a lot. If you get your hands on it its a beautiful sipping rum with character!

Dry and oaky, a little tannic, almost whiskey like. I was a little disappointed in my bottle of 3 star. Considering the price, I won't be buying again.
