    Rum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".

    ex-bourbon, finished in ex-cognac casks

Tasting Notes

"The aroma here is full of oak, warming barrel spices, and gentle char smoke. If you add water--just a splash--you'll find a bit more of the bourbon flavors of vanilla, golden syrup, and even a touch of marshmallow. The fruit factor here is low and offers up just an accent to the dram. It's sweet, but with everything else going on here it's balanced. You get more of the oak integration and gentle molasses flavor. Would definitely recommend this as a sipper, especially for whiskey drinkers."
