Review: Romero Dark Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 31, 2020

The Romero Distilling Company bills itself as Western Canada’s Premier Craft Rum Producer. They are based in Calgary Alberta and are headed by the father and son team of Diageo and Thomas Romero. (Diageo, the father, is a Professional Engineer and Thomas, the Son is a MBA Graduate.)  The distillery they built markets itself with a connection to Alberta’s rum running past.

The Romero Distillery produces a full line-up of rum and rum-like spirits, including an Amber, a Spiced and a Dark Rum, as well as a similar line of what they call Sugar Cane Spirit which is cane spirit which cannot legally be labeled as rum in Canada as it has not yet been aged for a full year in oak. (Note: In the USA there is no such regulation concerning age and the spirits could properly be called rum.)

Romero Dark Rum, the subject of this review, was distilled using Romero’s Canadian made hybrid copper pot still using Canadian Molasses and Glacier fed water from the eastern slopes of the Rockies. The spirit was matured in once used bourbon barrels from Woodford Reserve in Kentucky.

Here is a link to the full review:

Review: Romero Dark Rum

“… Leads out with vanilla and caramel accented by cinnamon and clove. Nutmeg is found next with cardamom and black pepper trailing, I do not get a firm sense of sweetness from the molasses. It is apparent but laid back further than we would find in most traditional dark rums …”

Please enjoy my review which included my Suggested Cocktail, Frank’s Slide.
