Review: Romero Dark Sugarcane Spirit

Posted by Arctic Wolf on January 15, 2021

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 I have learned is aged with what Romero Distilling calls an accelerated maturation process. The spirit cannot be called rum in Canada as it has not spent the minimum of one year in small oak as per Canadian law and thus cannot be called rum. (In the USA there is no such regulation concerning oak aging for rum and Romero’s Cane Spirits could properly be called rum south of our border.)

All the base ingredients and distillation processes are the same for Romero’s Cane Spirits as they are for their traditionally aged rums. This information was covered covered in some detail when I reviewed Romero’s traditional Dark Rum spirit (here).

This following link is to my full review for the Romero Dark Sugar Cane Spirit:

Review: Romero Dark Sugarcane Spirit 

“… Fine oak spice, vanilla and caramel accented by cinnamon and nutmeg. Hints of clove and cardamom with very light black pepper trailing. As with the Romero Dark Rum, 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. Unlike the Dark Rum from Romero, I notice bits of fine wood spice in the breezes. Perhaps a reflection of the accelerated maturation process …”

Please enjoy my review of this surprising spirit which includes a cocktail suggestion, The Mountain Climber.
