Released in April 2019, Ron Barceló Gran Añejo Dark Series is made much like the brand's Gran Añejo using estate-grown sugarcane and rums which are aged for up to six years in ex-bourbon barrels. The difference here is that heavily-charred barrels are used rather than medium light char barrels.

  • Aged Rum
    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".

Tasting Notes

"With the extra charred barrels, the aroma is really S'mores-like especially graham crackers and roasted marshmallows. The rum is full and sweet on the palate and there's a slight bittersweet finish. Whatever nuance the rum might have is covered up with the sweet flavors. If you've got a sweet tooth, consider this for a nightcap. Otherwise, probably best to add to a punch with lots of citrus or other fruit juice to cut the sweetness."
