Ron del Barrilito 3 Star rum is produced in Bayamón Puerto Rico by the Fernández family, which has been producing rum in the area since 1804, making it the oldest rum manufacturer in Puerto Rico. The rum is first blended and then aged for a minimum of 6 years.
A single barrel of Ron del Barrilito rum was set aside in 1942 called the 'Freedom Barrel.' When Puerto Rico gains its independence the Freedom Barrel will be opened in the Bayamón town square for all to share.
Recommendable to most
I cut my teeth on rums while in Puerto Rico. Was in a small restaurant bar in Old San Juan and asked the bar tender for his best rum. Sold on first taste. Difficult to get in PA or surrounding areas. I miss it.
This was the one that got me into sippers. The 2 star is also good and quite a bit cheaper but not as smooth and flavorful. The 3 star is just pure brown sugar :) a tip: if you can get to Puerto Rico, go visit the distillery. You can get this one for a very reasonable price there.
This a a good value rum. Plenty of flavor, hints of vanilla & leather. Light in texture and not as creamy as some similar priced rums.
It is a taste that I never tested before, for some they like and others not. We where 3 testing and only one said that it was really good.
Good smooth straight out the barrel. I visited the distillery years ago and purchased a mini barrel full with 3 Star for about 80 dollars. Brought it back when you could bring anything on an airplane. I keep refilling with 3 star. Ah the sweet smell of molasses and charred oak. BTW you can get 3 Star in liquor stores within most PR neighborhoods of NY.
This rum has a rich golden amber colour, with an inviting slightly smoky and molasses-syrupy scent... This is a full bodied rum, but not overpowering... Light but noticeable sweet and smoky flavours come through in this strong rum, without a harsh alcohol taste. This is the best "every day" mixing rum I've ever had from Puerto Rico. One of my new favourites.
