Review: Travellers 3 Barrel Aged Rum
Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 29, 2011
A few weeks ago I published my review of the Travellers 1 Barrel Rum. I never mentioned it at the time but this review was actually the first of several which I plan to write as I work my way through the Traveller’s line-up. The rum which is the focus of my review today is a brand new rum in that line-up, Travellers 3 Barrel Rum. The 3 Barrel is only available (for now) in Alberta which is the first place the rum has been exported, and in Belize where the rum is produced.
Belize is the northernmost mainland country of Central America. it is a former British Colony and 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 Rum in Belize since the early 1960s originally working with independent distillers. In 1989 Travellers acquired full control of their own distillery and has remained in full control of their 1 Barrel brand ever since.
I was given a bottle of 3 Barrel Rum by Blake Christensson of Travellers’ Liquor Canada for the purpose of this review. Here is an excerpt:
“…The 3 Barrel Rum has much more to offer as a sipper than the 1 Barrel Rum. The flavour is smoother and richer as the oak has set its imprint into the rum in a delightful way. Butterscotch and baking spices lead out onto the palate with a nice marmalade accent from the oak. The vanilla and the light tobacco flavours are in ample evidence and everything is easy to sip and easy to appreciate…”

As well I have included my recipe for 3 Barrel Punch.
Please enjoy the review and the recipe!
