24 Days of Rum (#17) – Borgoe 12 Reserve Collection (Suriname)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 17, 2019

With only 8 days left in the 24 Days Of Rum Advent Calendar from 1423 World Class Spirits  our destination is Suriname where Suriname Alcoholic Beverages N.V.  (SAB) was established in 1966.

Suriname’s most celebrated dark rum Borgoe was introduced in 1982 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sugar plantation Mariënburg. Borgoe 12 is well up the ladder in the Borgoe family of rums and according to the company website it is a blend of carefully selected rums, blended to perfection and aged in authentic oak barrels.

Here is a link to my tasting notes and scores for the No. 17 spirit in the 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box:

Review: Borgoe 12 Reserve Collection Rum

“… Melding of oak, caramel and baking spices with a light leathery bitterness and a touch of orange peel spiciness …”


Note: 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box produced by 1423 World Class Spirits contains 24 handpicked rums from 24 different countries all over the world. It features an extraordinary opportunity to sample a wide variety of premium rums allowing you to hone in on the particular style which suits your palate. As indicated in my previously published review (here) This Rum Advent Calendar is a highly recommended gift for the rum enthusiast.
