Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
A little astringent at first, so I like to let it mellow out with an ice cube and breath a little. I think it helps bring out the natural sugar flavor on the finish.
Being a screw top bottle from PR, I wasn't anticipating much. But to my surprise it was quite smooth, hits of smoke, mild fruit flavors, molasses and oak. I think I'll keep a bottle around. Very good for the price and one of the better PR rums.
The rum's aroma is a little intimidating. It has a rather strong alcohol odor making me think that it might be on the harsh side but upon tasting it I found it to be much tamer and smoother than the aroma seemed to indicate. It has a bit of initial sweetness with vanilla undertones which rapidly turns peppery. Quite the tongue tingler and at 86 proof it's a little stronger than the average rum.
I read somewhere that they source their rum from Bacardi, which goes to show that it's all in the aging process. Full flavored, dry, spicy, cinnamon, leather and delicious!

A great mixer with coke and dark fruit juices. Its also really good by itself. Lots of Caramel and a light spice with a little bit of butterscotch and toasted wood
This rum is not me in any way. The colour is light brown, the smell so and so, the taste gave me nothing, yet the aftertaste a little more live. But all in all, no thanks.
This rum has a spicy taste, with some smoke taste and I sense the hint of caramel. After delivery it seems to have a warm finish.. Not to shabby..
This is a particular Rum ! it seems more bitter than a rum.
Strong and intense smell.
The flavor is spicy and slightly bitter because caramel is very present, I suppose added in barrel.
