Recommendable to most
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
So many rum drinkers have zeroed in on rum having to taste sweet. There are actually two styles of rum, one dry and one sweet. Trigo is in the dry camp. I remember buying this rum in Puerto Rico and carrying it back in my suit case. I grew up drinking rum gimlets. What a delight. Three parts rum and one part Roses Lime Juice. What I have found is that sweet style rums DO NOT work at all with rum gimlets. They are TOO sweet. Trigo and Lemon Hart and sometimes Appleton are the right rums for rum gimlets and many other drinks. Cuba Libre is not meant for a sweet rum. Lemon Hart is the best, Trigo is very good. Too bad it is so hard to find.
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.
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 ;-)
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.
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.
When you think of Puerto Rican rum, you think of Don Q, Bacardi, Don Llave, Palo Viejo and Ron del Barillito. We need to include Trigo as part of this list because this rum really delivers. It is a smooth rum that isn't very sweet. It also isn't a heavy flavored or strong bouquet style rum similar to that of Jamaican rum. Just a nice enjoyable rum meant to be sipped straight and made part of your rum collection. Your liquor cabinet should contain Trigo as a nice representation of fine a fine Rican rum and what it should taste like.
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....😎
Havent been in PR for a long time. Good rum at a mid-price range. Very smooth, and sweet. Good to drink neat, with a splash of water, or simply with an ice cube.
