Review: 1 Barrel Rum
Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 15, 2011
1 Barrel Rum is a product of Belize, the northernmost mainland country of Central America. A former British Colony, Belize lies just south of Mexico with the Caribbean Sea to the east and Guatemala to the west and south. Travellers Liquors Limited has been involved in the production of 1 Barrel Rum in Belize since the early 1960s originally working with independent distillers. In 1989 Tavellers acquired full control of their own distillery and has remained in full control of the brand ever since.
I was given a bottle of 1 Barrel Rum by Blake Christensson of Travellers Liquor Canada for the purpose of this review.
Here is an excerpt from that review:
“…That laid back quality I sensed on the nose continues into the mouth with a rum which has a few rough spots but has a flavour which is easy to enjoy. Caramel and toffee lead out with a light spiciness that heats up the mouth just a little. I taste a light almond flavour, some orange peel spiciness, hints of coconut, and hidden away underneath is a light fruity quality that is reminiscent of canned apricots…”

As well I constructed a nice tall cocktail which I have named, Baron Bliss.
Please enjoy the review and the cocktail!
