Montanya Oro Rum
Montanya Rum // Colorado, USA
Based in high-altitude Crested Butte, Colorado, and making use of local snow-melt spring water, Montanya Distillers offers a unique approach and story. They offer funky, island-style rums from their snowy setting, using sugarcane from Louisiana, and utilizing used barrels from Stranahan's Whiskey for their aging. A three-year-old "Montyana Anejo" is due for release soon, which will finish the Oro in several different casks.
Gold RumRum that is often aged, but can also just have caramel-coloring added to provide color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"The nose offers a very buttery, creamy profile, with toffee, popcorn and nuttiness, along with lighter touches of hay and grass. The palate showcases a lighter strain of those buttery-creamy notes, to go with honey, earthy and mineral flavors, and sugarcane. The finish is very short, leaving roast and molasses flavors in its wake."
