Bartlett Spirits of Maine // Maine, USA
Bartlett Spirits of Maine distills their products in a German-made, copper pot still. Their rum is distilled from organic molasses and aged in French oak barrels for two years.
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.
"There's a rich aroma of baked apples, key lime, and pineapple brûlée. The flavors are complex and well integrated, showing sugary vanilla and tobacco flavors. There's also some very pleasant secondary tropical fruit flavors. This is a pleasingly complex rum that drinks much nicer than its young age would imply."
