Tanduay Double Rum is a premium, extra-aged rum that combines 5 and 16 year aged rums that are masterfully blended together and rested for an additional 2 years in Kentucky white oak bourbon barrels. This maturation process imparts a complex balance of dried tropical fruits, nutty overtones, as well as subtle vanilla and oak notes to craft a truly exquisite rum for the most discerning connoisseur.
That's some good stuff
Very nice rum. Filipina rum... Didn't know what to expect... But very nice. 16 years and 5 years blended together... tastes great.. fruits and almonds....
Found at Mollie Stones
Nice bottle. Great color. Oily thick nutty consistency.
Classic pallet of Madagascar vanilla, honey and medjool dates.
Apparently this company is one of the largest producers of rum in the world.
Very nice rum from the Philippines
So wasn't much expecting from local store, then there was this. First sniff is little sharp/alcoholic, second is sweet. Taste is caramel, little sharp edge. Let it breath a little and it's nice, no ice needed, it's well balanced after the breath. Further, banana, caramel and such. Taste is caramel with a little smokey finish, lasts quite long for the price must say. This is an above average rum, with a touch of the higher quality rums, without the hurts of the premium price(don't mix tough, it's really pretty good :) )
I honestly wasn’t expecting a good rum based on the Philippines not being known as a hotspot for rum making. But it turns out that this distillery has some real history. The rum has a great aroma that really makes you want to dive in. It has a little bite on the nose at first but that fades about 2 - 3 minutes after pouring.
The taste is really enjoyable both neat and with a cube of ice. Really tasted like two different rums. There was no chemically taste or heavy bitter wood flavor that can accompany some aged rum. I found it to be significantly less sweet than Diplomatico. More like the Zafra range, but not exactly dry. It definitely has legs on the glass, but not syrupy like many of the other popular ones.
I preferred to let it sit for 5 minutes after pouring when drinking neat. It doesn’t need long and even straight after the pour it wasn’t harsh, just better with opening. There are a few different layers to it and the finish is nice. It doesn’t blow you away with flavor, but is just really enjoyable and solid. On ice, it’s just so easy to drink. I actually only put it on ice because it’s a stereotypical Florida summer evening and cooler sounded better to sit on the porch and chill.
I heard that this won Gold at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America and Silver at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Tanduay Double Rum is a blend of two aged reserves—16-year-old rum and 5-year-old rum that are aged in the barrel for another two years. I got a chance to try some at Max's South Seas Hideaway in Gand Rapids (their mai tais are pretty good.) Wow! Best sipping rum I've ever tasted. So smooth, no burn. Full of sweet flavor.
