This Puerto Rican rum is an unsweetened rum aged for at least 12 years in oak and bottled in a very beautiful shaped bottle.
Trigo has a amber colour, and an aroma of almonds and oak.
At the palate is oak, toffee and nutty hints recognizable. It’s very smooth but overall too weak in my opinion but the finish lasts quite long even though it’s so weak.
Picture: My opened bottle.
I was given this bottle. At first I assumed it was no good, but I was wrong. A classic PR rum. Subtle nose with some hints of burnt sugar, light bodied with offerings of oak on a clean, dry palette and a similarly dry finish. It’s a little heavy on alcohol for 80 proof, but all in all a nice rum. A nice representation of PR style of rum.
The colour is quite light for an 12 year old rum.
What i really like about this dry rum is that it is very soft. Taste a little wood a little bitter, nuts, just an easy sipper.
This had a nice smooth flavor profile without a lot of sweetness. Not super complex, but some nice subtle flavors. Could be a sipper or a high-end mixer. I paid $17 for this at “The House” in San Juan, PR. The manager mentioned this is a great aged rum that is affordable and mostly produced for local consumption. It is not widely available outside of PR, which is probably why I see some people complaining about the price ($35-45) on the mainland. Maybe I need a larger suitcase for my next trip ;-)
Fantastic packaging with a nice nose, this rum want to be a mid plus sipper but not for me. Some nut smells and woods make the aroma appealing but on the tongue the burn is predominate and hangs with you.
A different kind of mixer with the rum not adding. Best with citrus, typical of a drier rum, but lost in Coke. Once again I did not blend it but do not think there is anything there for most drinks.
Not a bad rum just not above average and is priced to be something special; not in my long term plans.
This is some really good Rum..... My wife and I was surprised for it being my first time trying this Rum. Its becoming one of favorites now to see if we can get more....😎
I was really impressed by the bottle, and the rum is a decent smooth relatively dry rum. Smells and tastes of oak, almonds, spice, and maple. Another great expression from Puerto Rico.
The first glance of this beautiful bottle tells you to expect something just great. This spirit is a great introductionary rum for those who aren’t ready for the standard rums. It is definitely a conversation piece at any table or party. A wonderful gift at a reasonable price and a great addition to anyone’s bar. I highly recommend. Found only in specialty shops i.e duty free shops
I was impressed with this one. Great flavors profile and very easy to sip. Not a lot of burn on the finish. Love the woody hints. It is a bit drier than I had expected.
