Review: Don Omario’s Vintage Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 9, 2020

Don Omario’s Vintage Rum is a premium aged rum produced in Belize, (the northernmost mainland country of Central America). Belize 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. The producer of the One Barrel Rum brand, Travellers Liquors Limited, has been involved in the production of  rum in Belize since the early 1960′s originally working with independent distillers. In 1989, Travellers acquired full control of their own distillery, and they have remained in full control of their own brands ever since.

Traveller’s Vintage Rums are made from locally grown Belize sugar cane. According to the Travellers website, this cane is cut and crushed in a manner which retains its natural flavors, and the all of the rum is aged in Kentucky oak barrels. It is blended to be a full-bodied rum with the well-rounded taste which results from oak barrel aging.

Don Omario’s Vintage Rum was first released to honor the legacy of the Company’s founder Don Omario.​ The spirit was then Re-released on the occasion of Prince Harry’s visit to Belize in March 2012.​

Here is a link to the full review:

Review: Don Omario’s Vintage Rum

“… The rum crosses the palate with firm flavours of oak, vanilla and maple/butterscotch. There is some heated spices as well carrying impressions of orange peel, cinnamon and clove. Almond seems to turn into marzipan as the flavours settle. The best way to describe what I am tasting is that this is more like a melded elixir of rum and oak flavours …”

Please enjoy my review of this outstanding rum.
