Ron Del Barrilito 3 Star

Puerto Rico | Aged

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.

Had a weird almost plastic alcoholic taste. Very harsh rum. Could be a mixer but there are better options.

The brandy of rums. Very flavorful and aromatic. Best straight up.

I was introduced to this true gem back when I was on the island "Professionally" in the early 1980's. Since then, whenever I have been asked about my favorite spirit, my unquestioned choice was "Ron Del Barrilito", though I've never found it successfully sold in the US. I've found a few bottles, but usually the two-star variety, and the taste was never as I'd remembered it.
Recently, visiting the island as a tourist, I picked up a few bottles. The taste was everything I remembered, and more. My only thought is that possibly the rum doesn't travel well, or that age may not be kind to it.

I'm in San Juan PR at Metropol and Roy said try it. It's very good. Light but not a white rum, dark but not dark. Best of both worlds. Very smooth.

Light amber color. Short legs. Nose brings some orange notes. You can taste some smokiness. Not too sweet. This is a light body rum that does not linger in your mouth for a long time. The after burn is mild and manageable. A good sipping rum from PR.

This is by far the best rum from PR I've tried. So smooth and clean. Just enough sweet. The good standard all other Puerto Rican rums should try to meet.

This is my go to rum and has been for a while. Excellent with coke and can be enjoyed straight.

As far as Puerto Rican rums go, this is my favourite.

Barrilito Rum Superior Especial is een zeer milde rum, die gedurende 6 tot 10 jaar gerijpt heeft in eiken vaten. Deze rum wordt als sinds 1880 geproduceerd volgens hetzelfde recept.

Makkelijk puur te drinken.

This is a truly underrated rum. Excellent as a sipping or to mix.

Hits you abrasive out of the gate but quickly mellows to a smooth cane taste. Not very complex but taste great with coke & lime. Not very appealing without coke. Can be drunk on the rocks.
