This good rum from Jamaica has been aged in wooden barrels for several months bevor it has been filled into bottles and sold. This noble drops show their round and soft type. The rum loses in alcohol and takes aromas from the wood during storage in the barrels which often provides a warm vanilla flavor.
Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
