Absolute taste perfection
Excellent rum... you need to visit the factory (visitors center) to get a bottle. Will cost you approximately $350 per bottle, but you get to bottle it yourself as part of the experience.
From the website: “Ron del Barrilito Cuatro Estrellas is the newest member of our family, aged up to 20 years. ...Wide range of ripe tropical fruit, characteristic of elegant rums that go through the ancient process of maceration. Hints of apricot, fig, banana, and mango. Great finish with notes of caramel, vanilla, and toasted almonds.”
Best rum on the planet as far as I’m concerned. Went down to the distillery and had a wonderful tasting tour. The 4 star exclusivity and taste, second to none. Well done!
Did the tour last week in Puerto Rico and tasted all 4 of the variants (2 star through 5 star). The 4 star was a clear favorite for me with its hint of tropical fruits and distinct smoothness. By far my favorite rum I've ever tasted. Too bad you can only get it at the distillery.
This new blend of rum aged up to 20 years the oldest and 12 years the youngest is very very smooth while still keeping a very similar taste profile of the first and original Ron Del Barrilito 3 stars. I found it to be a bit sweeter molasses and syrupy. Thicker and darker then it's younger siblings and well worth the $300. Can't say the same fot the 5 star. If you like the 3 star bottle but wish it was smoother, then you will love 4 stars!
