Denizen // Multiple Countries
Denizen Vatted Dark Rum is a blend of dark rum from Guyana (80% of of the blend) and unaged rhum agricole from Martinique (20% of the blend). The Guyana rum portion is made from three different rums: 25% was distilled in French Savalle and Wooden coffey stills then it aged in ex-bourbon barrels, 25% was unaged wooden pot still rum, and the remaining 50% was dark unaged wooden pot still rum. Denizen Vatted Dark Rum is bottled at 100 proof.
Dark RumAKA Black Rum. Usually aged (but not always) and has additional caramel-coloring added to provide the dark/black color. Some are distilled from blackstrap molasses. No specific type or size barrel required for aging nor is there a set time required for aging in most countries with a few exceptions.
"Sweet, hot and funky - on the nose at least and all in a good way. A bit like candied banana dripped with molasses. On the palate, the combination of rum styles, ages and distillates twist and turn, making for a fine sipping experience with easy heat and a clean if tingling finish. Excellent."
